A very interesting, complicated, complex, discussion on suicide by Andrew Sullivan:  Suicide Leaves Behind Nothing.

Thanks for the article. I've been there with friends, and almost with a loved one. The site was very interesting and thoughtful.

I think there are at least 2 types of suicide.  I can understand one.  I don't believe I'll ever be able to wrap my head around the second.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Never heard of these people. Music is their claim to fame?

Her father, Bob Geldof, is a very famous musician.

Bob Geldof was the leader of the Boomtown Rats, an Irish band popular a number of years ago.

I thought I heard that she may have had some kind of eating disorder.

Anyone else hear that?
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
