One less Democrat
Man Kills Self at Ground Zero:
A 25-year-old university worker (it figures - ed) from Georgia shot and killed himself at ground zero Saturday morning, authorities said.
The man, Andrew Veal, of Athens, Ga., was found atop the structure housing the 1 and 9 subway lines after a hotel worker spotted what he believed was somebody sleeping inside the site around 8 a.m., said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. A shotgun was found near the body, Coleman said. No suicide note was found, he said.
Veal apparently was distraught over President Bush's re-election, Newsday reported Saturday on its Web site edition, citing an unnamed police source. The newspaper also said the man was a registered Democrat who opposed the war in Iraq.
I know that I am supposed to feel terrible when I read things like this, but I find it difficult to burn the emotion.
Life is a like a movie. At age 25, you've made it about a third of the way through. If you decide that maybe the next 50 years isn't worth sitting through, who's to argue? If your life sucks, you should be able to judge whether it's going to be getting better.
I mean, life is not for everyone...
(Now I am going to Hell. Definitely.)
