Suicide is Painless

If you are a news junkie like me, you have probably seen the story of Samuel Israel III who may or may not [probably not] committed suicide by jumping off the Bear Mountain Bridge in New York. On the front of his car, he wrote "Suicide Is Painless" in the dust, which is a reference to the theme song to M*A*S*H*. When I was in high school, my best friend's parents had nearly every episode of M*A*S*H* on tape...not DVD...tape. Now that is what I call commitment.

P.S. The movie is way, way, way, way better than the best TV episode ever was...
