Rest in peace dear, sweet Grego. My heart is breaking for the pain and torment you must have been suffering. I wish I could have been there to comfort you.

Is that the Greg who worked for Southern Wine and Spirits?

Someday we'll advance to the point where if an individual no longer wants to live, he or she will entering a caring, benevolent end-of-life process, under hospice-like supervision, so that the life can be ended with dignity and the indiviudal won't have to throw themselves in front of a train or jump off a bridge or whatever crude, inhuman method they desperately choose. Death with dignity, not on the railroad tracks.

354: So well said. I hope that day comes.

354: that day cannot come fast enough. There's an apparent need that's waiting to be fulfilled for death in a humane way.

Let us turn away from talk of train track fencing to putting our signatures on a public initiative to make ending one's life with dignity possible.

Who would be against such a thing?

If he wanted death with dignity, well there are more dignified ways of going about it.

What a sad choice. Hope the train conductor recovers soon from the trauma of hitting this person.
