You know, if you are going to kill yourself, at least have the decency to do it where it won't disrupt the lives of hundreds or thousands of innocent people. Don't jump off a bridge on the 605, or kill yourself on a trail in the forest, or jump in front of a train. Just do it in the privacy of your own home.

Better yet, seek out some help via professional, social, or religious organizations. Just leave the innocent people out of it.

There should be instruction booklets handed out to Republicans for free on how to do it right.

What's so "sad" about it? People should be *encouraged* to kill themselves however it should be done at hmoe or some place where it doesn't adversely impact other people.

There used to be an organization called the "Human Surplus League" that approaches the arena with humor however killing yourself *is* a completely legitimate solution to one's problems, it's just wrong only when these losers cost tax payers money.

He would have been more successful running head first into a parked train.

If he wanted attention why didn't he call the suicide hotline? There are people their paid by our tax dollars for the sole purpose of giving those distrught people some attention. Other than that, do it at your own house and stop making other's lives difficult.
