Except for the other people hurt, I can relate to the motives if not the method of the airplane-suicide in Austin.

Sooner or later, The Man becomes a bit too full of shit for some people. Not me, of course. Especially the hurt or dead strangers. You’ll see a lot more of this kind of thing in a 10% (conservatively) unemployment rate world.

Taking others out is just wrong. But if you compare it to this, you may be able to see it as I do.

Update: This is even worse: I think every terminally ill person with a political axe to grind should take themselves out on the Capitol steps. (Yes, this is very weird.)

Update: IOZ, as usual, says it way better than I could.
