At least these people are going about it in a civilized manner. No one has to scrape them off the road, hose them off the front of a subway, cut them down from swinging off the rafters or replace the perfectly good carpet that got full of blood stains from the gunshot wound to the head.
I’m not suggesting that people should be lining up at a gas chamber because they lost internet access yesterday or because they’re wife caught them at the strip joint. Believe me, after many a bender, I’ve woke up praying I could find a gun laying around somewhere. I remember waking up on Ambrose’s floor in Toronto one morning, looking at Zeus with hot sauce all over his face and he says “Could we be lucky enough for someone to come in here with a gun and blow us away?”
Yes, there has to be a solid process. But if people want out, I think a system to allow it in a civilized way could reduce the suicide rate. It has to be a tight system. Maybe a 6 month program that includes 5 steps:
- Tailored rehab Program
- Final Counseling
Final step: Dr. Kevorkian (or reasonable facsimile)
Let's face it, anyone who really wants out is going to do it no matter what. Actually, come to think of it, maybe that's what our leaders want. If someone wants out, let's just let them do it so we don't have to set up any new social programs to deal with it. We just have to fish them out of the river, pull their head out of the gas oven or whatever. Click HERE for the lowdown on the facts.
