What's the proper protocol when spending time/talking with other people after something horrible, but not personal, happens?
What I mean is: Do you meet up for dinner and go "So... Connecticut. Tragic" and then look at the menu and go "oooh they have artichoke puffs!"? Do you just meet up and not talk about it? Do you refrain from having a great time, or laughing too loud, or do you just go about business as usual?
