This isn't the kind of thing I'd usually say. I don't know these people outside the headlines; I don't know anything about their lives. But Gordon Brown looked so completely, unashamedly, tell-the-world-ly happy when his baby was born -- and when his baby was ill I really felt for him. Now their baby dies and I can never understand what they're feeling, but it's so unfair, so sad. What a horrible world. What a life. Sigh.
