"Suicide: Choice, or Compulsion?" Normally this is a show about people who make their dreams come true. But what about people who have lost their dreams? In only a few days, the internet has exploded with grief over the death of Robin Williams -- and controversy, as certain pundits have made disgracefully uncompassionate comments like "He made his choice." Uh, excuse me? Today, I read another excerpt from my forthcoming "Blue Blood, Green Heart," taking you back to the dark days of my own near-suicide. Was it a choice, or a compulsion? Then we'll take a look at Robin Williams' astrology chart, and the factors that pushed him over the edge after a 35-year career of comedy.
