How low can you go, part 38294

Here in Madison a little while ago, there was a horrible, horrible incident just up the street from my office. There had just been a lot of rain, and a power line went down, right into the flooded street. A woman and her baby were electrocuted at a bus stop, just as a bus pulled up. One of the passengers jumped out of the bus and tried to help.

All three died instantly. The woman's son and the bus driver were also jolted, but survived.

I leave it up to you to imagine how horrible that must have been. My imagination is pretty good.

So where does "how low can you go?" come in? Well, the grocery store that sits not too far from the bus stop had a collection box out, solicitng donations for the victims' families. That box was stolen. How big of a dick do you have to be to do something like that?
