The only people more tragic than Web 2.0 pundits who demand newspaper reporters overshare their every move are the reporters who take their advice. Berny Morson from Denver's Rocky Mountain News dragged the gravesite into the 21st century Wednesday by sending updates from the funeral of a three-year-old boy killed in a car crash that made headlines last week. I'm not saying Berny (is that M or F?) shouldn't have done it — I'm saying Berny did it wrong. Rather than convey the human drama on location, Morson dryly noted each step in a ritual that readers could have guessed. Next time, why not let the next of kin do the typing? That seems easier.
