U-Va. lacrosse coach's father dies

By Washington Post editors

The father of University of Virginia men's lacrosse coach Dom Starsia has died. He was 86.

Ill with various forms of cancer, Dominic Joseph Starsia had been in hospice care since February, the school said.

The deceased was a World War II veteran and a retired New York City police officer. He moved to Virginia in the late 1990s to be closer to his family, according to the school.

His death comes four days after a member of the Cavaliers' top-ranked lacrosse team was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of a member of the women's lacrosse team. George Huguely was arrested Monday, hours after Yeardley Love's body was found.

I'm all for throwing the book at Hugely, but what is with the constant comments in these blogs about his family's wealth and him being "spoiled." I really do not understand why people have to constantly demonstrate their envy of other people's money. Who cares that his family is wealthy?
