The Sun Sentinel has taken a backseat in reporting news, presenting issues so critical to Florida's well being. Never do we hear of investigations into the guns being pushed into this state, the corruption of our elected officials, the involvement of key individuals in the mortage fraud cloud that took Florida down.

So it is no surprise you choose not to offend once again. Give it up & just turn this sham into a recipe book because you guys have lost your balls.

If it happened and it's news why should it not be reported?

The only copycats are going to be more troubled people... who most likely have knowledge gleaned from movies, books and many TV shows that think nothing about using suicide as a theme for entertainment purposes.

The Sun-Sentinel's noble effort to suppress news is nonsensical.

Earl, I appreciate your stance on reporting this story. You all took the high road and put people's lives and dignity ahead of selling papers and that should be commended. Thank you for displaying a little of what America needs in 2008: integrity.
