This is always tragic. But, some how the death of an Amtrak employee escapes the news. Weird ( Engine service employee crushed to death while preforming a traction motor change out :( )

Then some farmer has to go through the trama of finding the body. Regardless of the method chosen, the suicide leaves something behind to clean up. And if they somehow manage not to leave a body, they leave behind unanswered questions.

"Be a man" ... live. Don't take the "easy" way out. Suicide is never ok.

There was one in Lawton 2 years ago, was a 2 day clean-up in somebody's yard. Never pretty and with all the money their spending on fencing along the line still not going to prevent the determined.

No, suicide is NEVER OK. Not what I meant. But if your taking the cowards way out of life instead of facing up to it...at least don't do it in front of a train or a truck or in front of some poor schmuck.
