Do you think people overuse/misuse the term "tragic death"?

I keep reading in other forums how Anna Nicole Smith's death was "tragic" because she was so young. I've heard this term many other times under similar circumstances. In my opinion, a tragic deaths involve the 9/11 deaths, a young child who is killed by a kidnapper and hate crimes just to name a few. When a woman who led a superficial, whorish and drug-induced life dies, this is not a tragedy as she brought her fate on herself. So what if she has a baby or was only 39? It's still not tragic. It is sad for the baby and pathetic and undignified for her, not tragic. On the other hand, maybe her baby will be better off living in a (hopefully) drug-free environment with a father who is relatively well put together.
