Local Newswoman Questions Widow's Acceptance of Tragedy .....

Gilead, Nebraska-Angela Purdy, reporter for Gilead's Channel 7 News, expressed concern over Lois Simpson's acceptance of the death of her family during a live interview today.

While standing in front of the smoldering wreckage containing the charred remains of Simpson's husband and three children, Purdy explained to the sobbing widow how tragic the situation was and asked if she was coming to terms with her loss.

"What a horrible tragedy. I mean, losing your entire family like that. I felt it was my duty as a journalist to make certain that she was aware of how utterly wretched she must have been feeling." Purdy explained. Channel 7 viewers were able to take comfort in the fact that Ms. Simpson was despondent about the whole situation and just wanted to be left alone.
