WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Firefighters rescued a man who jumped from MLK Parkway into the marsh below. MLK was shutdown heading out of downtown for more than an hour as they worked.

A New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman says a deputy stopped to check on a possible broken down vehicle on the side of MLK near the McRae Street exit around 9 a.m. When the deputy pulled over, there was no one in the vehicle. When she walked around, she looked down and saw a man in the marsh.

A Wilmington Fire Department spokesman says the man tried to commit suicide by jumping, but failed. Investigators are still trying to figure out how he fell or if he jumped.

I (and WWAY) decide when I post and what articles I respond to.

I can always count on some rube to come back with more insults simply because he or she thinks that I need to think differently.

So thanks for all that attention. While you’re feeding my supposed craving, please don’t forget the REAL reason I post, which is to try and get some logic and common sense back into a society that is seemingly dominated by emotions, political correctness, and a willingness to accept any behavior at all, without holding people accountable.

I may be “too hard” for contemporary standards,… Read more »

You forgot several more…you think you know more than anyone else, you think you’re better than anyone else, and you love getting a rise out of people.

For someone who wants people to “leave me totally alone and don’t make demands on my life and time”, you sure do a lot of posting on this website to get people to respond to your comments. Even if they respond negatively, you get the attention you so highly crave. Any attention is better than none…right?

I think that with each post you make, people are seeing more and more what a “cold,… Read more »

You know what’s truly funny?

The anger, insults, name-calling, and general ill-will emanating from all you “compassionate people” at two guys who simply choose to disagree with your mamby-pamby, “oooh the poor baby” coddling view.

“Be compassionate or karma’s gonna getcha!”

*You’re not compassionate – you should be in a nuthouse!”

“You’re a Nazi!”

“You’re a clown!”

“You’re stupid!”

Look, I freely admit that I’m discompassionate and cold but you guys need to admit that you are like Barney on a ‘roid rage. “Love your fellow man, or we’ll beat you bloody.”

I hope I didn’t make any of you kind, gentle souls cry by pointing out… Read more »
