    Caslon,

    The guy who cut off his hand had a history of schizophrenia, and had gone off his medications...at least, that's according to a close friend of mine. She knows him well and was extremely upset about it the other day when she called to tell me about it.

    Re; the guy who threw the children off the bridge, That just hurts me all over !! this guy couldn't have been in his right mind to do that, he must have been insanely jealous or something happened that made him snapp in an effort to get back at his X. Was something like that involved caslon ? I've raised children and have 3 grandchildren I take care of at times for weeks, and I just cannot imagine what could (outside of being insane)cause a man to do this. TERRIBLE !!!!!

    In DC, we had a mother who killed her four children LAST MAY and the police discovered the bodies in the house where she killed them just this past week. The Sheriff was serving an eviction notice to the family and when the mother opened the door, the eviction server smelled the bodies. The oldest was 17 and the youngest was like 4 or something! Just horrific!!!!

    My old cleaning lady's 1st husband fell asleep on the couch with a cigarette. He burned down the house and their four children with it. Ironically her alcoholic husband was spared by the fire. She was devastated, later she took a gun and killed him, and went to jail for sometime.

    I couldn't imagine having to go through something that horrible, yet you hear these things on the news on a regular basis.

    Not sure if it's right to share tragic stories, but i'm gonna anyway.
    A friend of my who's a director of a hospital, said they had a case one night, where a drunk or high gay couple came for help. apparently one guy ask the other guy to help him cut his penis off, and he's partner did.
