If you feel compelled to go to the top of a ten story building to collect your thoughts AND you have a degree in mechanical engineering, you should know how bad gravity can be if you get too close to the edge.
Call me insensitive, but I really don't have sympathy for those lacking in the common sense department.

Fellow Louisiana Taxpayers:
The Senate voted last night, 60-37, to continue the “Cash for Clunkers” program.
However, one important amendment, which could have made the continuation of this program much more palatable for the U.S. taxpayers, was rejected.
LA Senator David Vitter offered an amendment to provide a real termination date for the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), which is the $700 billion financial bailout passed last Fall, with the support of then-President George Bush and Congressional leadership of both parties. The legislation, which introduced socialism into our banking system, provided for the Treasure-Secretary to have the authority to extend the bailout for another two years after the 2009 termination date.
Back then, Sen. Mary Landrieu, who was in the middle of a re-election campaign, bragged about standing up for LA taxpayers and voting AGAINST the bailout. She sent out press releases.
However, last night, Senator Landrieu voted AGAINST Vitter’s amendment to repeal the extension power and set the real termination date of financial bailouts to this year.
The measure failed 41-56, with three Democrats voting for ending the bailout. But Senator Landrieu voted to continue throwing out taxpayer money.
Mary Landrieu…claiming to stand up for taxpayers of Louisiana and votes our wishes during re-election season, but continues to put the screws to us the other 5 years.
Senator Landrieu’s office numbers:
