“It was inconsiderate to those hurt in the crash and to the city of New
York. What happened last week in the East Village is not to be taken
lightly and I regret my course of action.” – Former Iowa Democratic
Party Communications Director Christine Freundlich, apologizing for
taking a cheerful selfie in front of the gas explosion which destroyed the homes of
over 100 New Yorkers, injured dozens, and killed two, whose bodies were recovered yesterday. (Tipped by JMG reader Ragnar)
CORRECTION: I posted the wrong photo in the first draft of this post. It’s not clear that Freudlich was also part of the group whose selfie made the front page of the New York Post.
