We have had two really sad events in our town in the last few days. First, a young man jumped off the Second Street parking deck and killed himself. It is always sad to see a loss of life like that.
What is sadder still, is that few of us will ever know what this young man's demons were. Some of us have struggled with our own demons. If we knew him and had the chance, we would have told him this: "Problems are temporary, but death is final."
The other sad thing is that we have a local politician whose mind is obviously off the rails.
Both of these situations are attempts to get attention. We do non know how the second one is going to end up. It will probably not be good.
Some of his coharts down there on Council should have a serious heart to heart with this man.
