Oh, and lets make it really "classy" and put the face of Andreas Lubitz on the page telling you how you can avoid depression.

That's right, if Lubitz just used St. John's Wort, no one would have died in the French Alps.

Hey, why not exploit human suffering, loss and grief to sell your cheap remedy for depression?

If you can make a quick buck, why not?

Really?
