Morbid French

I was thinking as I went to sleep last night that most of my textbook french preparing was in the form of teaching me words about killing or death. I thought it was really funny at the time, even Now that I'm trying to relearn french, those are the first words that come back to me, and last night I thought it even funnier as I saw it as being particularly goth.

But today it's much more sombering, as I review the french news sites for what's going on in the Ivory Coast, and all of those words are tumbling out at me. "Tuer" is not a word I ever really wanted to see in actual usage.
