YOu may think that sounds kinda funny, like maybe it's my lame attempt at humor - well here's a news flash.
I DON'T HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR.
No I don't. Google claims there are seven articles for the above quote: "Woman sets self on fire".
Here's a copy of the result:

That looks like two results to me - and neither of them are the Burlington Free Press - which had a very pertinent quote in the comments section to the article. I did save the quote, here:
Woman dies after lighting self on fire at Burlington filling station

I think it is time to address the whole issue of why she did this, and if the public should be informed:
This woman did not close the door of her bedroom and down a bottle of sleeping tablets - She walked in to the most public place she could find, and took her life in about the most dramatic and disturbing fashion one could think of. She WANTED to be seen, she WANTED people to be horrified!! Self-immolation is the method Tibetan monks use to grasp the world's attention, and bring the focus of the press to their plight. This is something she would have undoubtedly known, and considered.
I think it is an absolute given that she WANTS people to know why she did it!

Google can kiss my ass.
And Tim Raisbeck has it right - almost. The woman is dead now, presumably she couldn't care less what we say or do. Not anymore.
Do you have any idea what it takes to push a person to such a place? Any idea at all? Probably not. Tim Raisbeck does. He has some idea. So do I. I could show you, if you like . . .
Lets presume for a moment, just presume, she was my test case. She wasn't. I wouldn't do that - unless maybe to CArl with a K Rove, for example, but I digress. Lets just presume . . . I pushed her over the edge.
given all of the silence around such instances perhaps I'll do you next.
ya just never do know do ya.
also of note:
two train crossing bucks malfunctioned in Vermont today,
and yesterday two tractor trailers over turned, one carrying chocolate, the other sugar.
someone is talking and I can't hear anything but bullshit.
