    Yesterday in LA, California, there was a married couple with 5 children. Both the mother and father worked at a local hospital.

    It seems that they lied about their income to an outside agency so they could get cheaper child care, because, hey.......times are tough.

    The agency reported them back to the hospital and they were fired. A comment allegedly made by one of the man's supervisors was "why don't you just shoot yourself?".

    The man went home that afternoon, shot all 5 of his children and his wife in the head (some were shot several times), then turned the gun on himself.

    With no job and 5 kids, 'better to end our lives,' man wrote - CNN.com

    Sad really.

    Both the husband and his wife fired, and from the same joint?

    And instead of him going postal onKaiser Permanente's West Los Angeles Medical Center he killed his family and himself?

    Let me tell yas', Kaiser Permanente's West Los Angeles Medical Center employees are god damned lucky to be alive this evening.

    You can bet your ass that Ervin Lupoe gave some thought to going postal before he arrived at his final solution.

    What a tragedy.

    Nope.....no fault of Bush Jr. here (at least, not directly). Bush just removed the limiting factors on the market, and the greedy pricks on Wall St. did the rest.

    Now.....if you want to put Bernie Madoff, as well as all those other banking idiots down as accomplices, then by all means, be my guest. They can be held accountable, as it was their direct actions that have led to this current mess we're in economically.

    But.......I really find this disturbing, especially when there are so many of them occurring all over the world.

    Interestingly enough, the local news (channel 7), said that Amarillo wasn't affected by this current crop of suicides.

    Unfortunately, my room mate works in a hospital, and she tells me what kind of cases came in (no specifics, no names, just overall general stuff), and, she said that the incidence of suicide here in Amarillo has dramatically risen.

    Anyone remember the lady last winter who killed herself on the morning that she was to be evicted?

    I hope this trend stops, SOON.

    This is sad. But I think that it has more to do with the mental health of the parents than the economy. There ain't shit worse than death except maybe dying a horrible death or actually seeing death coming.

    Living near LA we are hearing this in the context of other local happenings - apparently it is the third such type of reaction in the past six months (the most memorable being the dad who dressed up like santa and killed his wife etc at a party. )

    Yeah. And this morning in Australia, some dude threw his little girl over a 110 ft bridge.

    She died at the hospital.
