1 Zero-Sum | The Billfold


“The coroner ruled on Friday that the three [siblings]— identified as George Alva, 53; Barbara Alva, 49; and Christine Alva, 47 — had all taken their own lives … While the police declined to speculate on any motive, they confirmed that the family had been facing a forced eviction from their home and were to leave the house that day.” — NYT

What jerks. I think suicide should be legal, but killing their pets in a horrible way and putting emergency crews at risk was horribly selfish.

@Sarah Rain@facebook Seriously. Kill yourself if you so wish, but give your pets to a no-kill shelter first. Jesus.

I really enjoy visiting the Billfold but I’m always perplexed by posts that are just cut-and-pastes from other sites without any editorial comments.
