The Results of the Financial Crisis in Human Terms

Being the lazy sort who doesn’t feel like doing his own research I just borrowed this information from the blog of an acquaintance. Apparently the financial crisis is having a very negative effect on the lives of individuals.

"An out-of-work money manager in California loses a fortune and wipes out his family in a murder-suicide.”

"A 90-year-old Ohio widow shoots herself in the chest as authorities arrive to evict her from the modest house she called home for 38 years.”

"In Massachusetts, a housewife who had hidden her family's mounting financial crisis from her husband sends a note to the mortgage company warning: "By the time you foreclose on my house, I'll be dead." Then Carlene Balderrama shot herself to death, leaving an insurance policy and a suicide note on a table.

"Across the country, authorities are becoming concerned that the nation's financial woes could turn increasingly violent, and they are urging people to get help. In some places, mental-health hot lines are jammed, counseling services are in high demand and domestic-violence shelters are full."

Funny how there hasn’t been any stories yet about someone who is just a little bit unstable to begin with going to work with a lot of guns and ammo and taking out the supervisor staff. Hmmmm?
