This kind of oblivious self-absorption continues to amaze me. "The photo of 7 women cheerfully taking a selfie on 2nd Avenue—as buildings crumble and burn behind them, and victims of the explosion remain missing—was almost unbelievable. The selfie stick, the beaming smiles... surely this was Photoshopped. It wasn't." I've heard of the selfies at graves, at concentration camps, and other completely inappropriate places, so this shouldn't surprise us at all.
