The NYU library suicide

The other day we had a suicide at NYU's library.

The NY Post had a story on it yesterday, but it was deleted.

Here is the story now.

Suicides are always tragic events. But when the NY Post came out with the story, that was now deleted, here were the first comments:

One less male to compete with for a job.

hopefully he was gay

Yankees fan, definitely.

What a terribly sad and unnecessary act.

It took a fourth post before we could find compassion? No wonder the story was deleted.

Now a life is worth way more than all the babble that comes from Wall Street.

But does anybody notice that whenever we get a bit of good news on Wall Street, that we always have three negative spins on it, before anybody says anything good?

The other day, I thought that the Packer fans had over-stepped the line with Brett Favre.

We have a new definition of overstepping.

Those New Yorkers that trivialized a young man's tragic death.
