A Sad Sign of Our Times

Many of us awoke this morning to news of another tragic murder-suicide, a family of seven in metro LA. While it's far too early to offer a cogent analysis, I am afraid that this may well become a sad sign of our times.

Since we live in a society predicated on work and income, as more and more people face layoffs or business shutdowns, more and more people are going to feel like there is no alternative better than death.
