There are some things we don’t need to know about

I think I’ve blogged on this issue before, but if not I’ve certainly intended to do so… There’s a report in a daily paper today about a man who seems to have accidentally hanged himself during one of those infamous ‘sex games gone wrong’. I just really think it’s wrong to report such stories. (I’m not going to link to the story because that would just make it worse).
OK, the man was a headteacher, at a school for pupils with special needs, but there is no suggestion at all that his extra-curricular activities had any connection with his work, or could in any way be deemed to be a matter of ‘public interest’. What people forget, it seems, is that he leaves behind a widow, six children and seven grandchildren. Is it not bad enough that they’ve lost their husband/ father/ grandfather and in such dreadful circumstances, without having to see it splashed across the papers in such salacious detail?
