    Thanks for the offer, but I think we're done here. This is quickly becoming the "Cephus thread." Within hours TMZ will have the scoop, "friends" will give "exclusives" for money, if there was an unscrupulous first-responder, there will be dead pics, and then in another 24 hours or so, Lee Thompson Young will probably be forgotten except as a "cautionary tale" of some sort. I'm sure great wads of money are about to be made.

    There's a difference between acknowledging that someone dies and reacting in horror that someone dies. Millions of people die every day, most of them don't make the news and most go totally unknown to the world at large. Enjoy your time while you're here, do something you find worthwhile, make the world a better place because tomorrow, you might not be.

    He didn't have to, he chose to. Nobody forced him to kill himself, it was his own decision. You may disagree with his reasons, but they were his reasons and he has a right to act on his reasons, good or bad, if he chooses to.

    Maybe it's just me, but the fact that he committed suicide suggests that he was unhappy

    Some people feel sad about other peoples' unhappiness. It's called empathy. Some people have it

    And some don't

    His life can be great, and from the outside that seems to be the case. But he suffered from a largely invisible but seriously debilitating disease called depression.

    been there done that, I have suffered severe case of clinical depression on a couple of occasions when I was younger, never thought of actually offing myself.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    If you are cognitively aware of these types of thoughts, you're over the first hurdle. You know you aren't feeling well, you know you have the potential to feel much, much worse. I hope that if you ever get to that point, you get help. At least you know that this is a possibility, and I think that might help you out.

    Same here, Oscar. Been very depressed on more than one occasion, but I do have a good support group that I know I can reach out to, and talk to, and that helps. Maybe he didn't have that.

    And Cephus, you can wail about it all you want, but suicide isn't about the person who kills himself. It's about who he leaves behind. It's the most selfish thing a person can do. He destroys the ones he leaves behind.
