Thats not suicide. But you can delight because Merill has been Lynched and many others have suffered a great deal. When will this end? If its anyone who should be put on the spot for this mess we are in, its those damm people who took out loans without being able to comprehend basic math. The only fault of the capitalist was that they took pity on these people and trusted these people's claims about being able to get a pay raise and their seriousness about getting their act together. Academia is overflowing about how capitalists have been exploitative and greedy and not caring about workers rights and blah blah.. but little captures the mentality of the proletariat masses which is so fraught with greed and hypocrisy as poignantly as these recent events have.

A challenger appears:

Loren Coleman, an expert on suicides and author of "The Copycat Effect," notes that suicides actually decrease during times of social and economic stress
