    Was he on any shows currently? He was on Jett Jackson, he had a short-role on FlashForward. Both of those shows are on DVD, I'm sure. So what are you missing, honestly?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    wow. so sad. I've never gotten "suicide", been through some pretty bad times and never thought about doing it. Maybe if I had been caught molesting a kid and was facing decades of abuse in prison, maybe.
    Pretty sad. Dying at 29 is sad, period. Add to that a dream career and it's even sadder. I would suspect that he had some sort of mental illness or seemingly intolerable recent life events. And, in the end, people ultimately commit suicide when the difficultly and pain they experience exceeds the coping mechanisms they have. This is why it's essential that people with depression and other mental illnesses get treatment - so that they can learn how to cope with the pain and difficulties that result from their mental illness so that it doesn't overcome them.

    You certainly interpret what others say to suit your purpose, don't you?

    You don't know anything about me, actually, so all you have to go on is what I write. You're willfully misconstruing my point. That's fine with me just so long as you're aware that it's pretty transparent.

It's certainly not a tragedy for the person involved, they are exercising their free will. It's only really a tragedy for the people who were directly and personally involved with the one who committed suicide. It's just that the biggest deal tends to be made by people who neither had any personal connection to the individual in question or any understanding of the individual's mindset, wishes or desires.
    You do have a point. There are people (ex terminally ill with excruciating pain) for whom life would be best if ended. However, I don't think that's the case in every suicide, or even in most suicides.

    PS - When I made the misanthrope remark, I thought I was responding to Oscar.

    No, I can't read your mind. However, I know the difference between genuine confusion and feigned confusion. When someone says that they don't "get" something that is exceptionally easy to get, they are feigning confusion in order to make a point. That's what you did. /shrug

    He was on Rizzoli & Iles on TNT. In fact, the last episode of the season had to be shelved now.

    Actually, he played Detective Barry Frost on "Rizzoli and Isles."
