A few decades ago Johnny Mandel penned these inspiring words:

The game of life is hard to play

I'm gonna loose it anyway

The losing card I'll someday lay

So this is all I have to say,

That suicide is painless

It brings on many changes

And I can take or leave it if I please. 

That song later became famous as the theme song for the movie--and, later long running T.V. show--M*A*S*H.  But suicide is not painless, and it's not humorous.  Baby boomers in record numbers are taking the suicide short cut to escape the anxiety, disappointment, and seemly pointlessness of life.  But, is that an answer?


Greg and Margaret talk about suicide, hope, destiny--and the future. &
