    A deputy copy desk chief lost a second member of his family Saturday, stemming from a house fire on Thursday. His 16-year-old son died Saturday morning, after his 11-year-old daughter died earlier. The Sun employee (didn't get a name) is still in the hospital. Incomprehensible.

    Crap. Hopefully he and the rest of his family will recover.

    I don't even know what to say. I couldn't begin to comprehend.

    Sad any time of year, but especially at the holidays.

    I echo what has been said above.

    Those of us with kids need to give them an extra hug today.

    This is incredibly sad.
