Wasn't this an episode of CSI? Seriuosly, I think it was. Haven't listened to all of BPP yet, so hope you didn't already mention it.

T. Weiss, if I remember the episode right, a guy dressed as a clown committed suicide, and the gun was found in a tree downwind.
Then again, I might be collapsing episodes.

re Barista-rage... I read the article, went to the coffee shop's commercial website, and am quite confused. This is from their site: "No modifications to the Classic Cappuccino. No questions will be answered about the $5 Hot Chocolate (during the months we offer it). No espresso in a to-go cup. No espresso over ice. These are our policies. We have our reasons, and we're happy to share them." You have your reasons for not answering questions about the 5 dollar slop, and you'll be happy to share them? So you'll explain why you have a policy not to answer questions about a product you sell (and you seem extraordinarily impressed with yourself with regard to the products you sell), but you will answer questions about why you have such a policy of not answering questions?
I can see why gasoline and matches come to mind...

What a very sad story. My guess is he tried to hide that this was a suicide in order to make it easier on his wife and son.
I am a 51 year old man. I'm sure that makes the story that much sadder to me.
