himself on fire at Prospect Park
in protest suicide against fossil fuels

A nationally known advocate for gay rights and the environment died Saturday in a fiery Prospect Park suicide, with his self-immolation meant as a wake-up call to save the planet. The charred remains of David Buckel, 60, were discovered shortly after sunrise when firefighters responded to a 6:40 a.m. blaze in the southwest corner of the sprawling Brooklyn park. “I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide,” read a hand-written suicide note left near the blackened circle of burned grass. “I apologize to you for the mess.” A second, longer note — left with the first

This guy had bigger problems than fossil fuels.

He probably used a BIC lighter with a fossil fuel in it.

We don’t give the coveted Darwin to idiots who take themselves out over stupidity. For this moron the permanent solution to a non problem seems fitting. I hope others join him in the ultimate sacrifice to save Earth from nothing but their own ideas and perceptions of reality as they see it.

Feel good story for the day?

So, there was this homosexual lawyer who set himself on fire....stop me if you´ve hear this one.

He didn´t take his life very seriously, why should I?

Am I right to be thinking that the more politically attached a person seems the more that person may be unbalanced mentally? Yes, politics affect our everyday lives - too much now-a-days! But it is not the end all & be all. There has to be a leveling - to gain a sense that there is more to life than the material and the drive for some imaginary political power & a utopia. Most of us watch the national power plays between the political parties & the business interests knowing we have little or no leverage to change anything. Yet this poor soul was so emotionally invested that he committed suicide - thinking that his death would make a ´statement´?

just reading about the activities this man was involved in, all pushing the homosexual agenda on normal and decent people, he must have been in a really dark place mentally.
I feel sorry for those who witnessed this horrible act and saw his body. Eight years ago I found a neighbor in his front yard dead from a heart attack and it was pretty shocking. Can´t imagine the nightmares these people will have.
I pray he has found some peace now.

Probably a Malthusian, too.

But he clearly took his faith seriously.

On the other hand, he was deluded. And it´s sad, because he threw away his life so foolishly on account of the obstinance of his ignorance.

Very good point, #28. I doubt that even occurred to him.

I cannot understand this kind of zealotry. The Buddhist monks were responding to a genuine threat. He is responding to an imagined threat. Not the same thing.

His loved ones must be heartbroken. I can´t imagine they laud or admire his decision. It is the act of a deeply disturbed man.

I appreciate that this must sound like a broken record that simply keeps repeating itself, but why should anyone care for such a person in light of the true reality that during the hours and minutes that he contemplated his final act, that hundreds of innocent, defenseless lives were purposefully taken via abortion on demand. Roe v wade fairly demolished the bedrock moral belief that all human life has a value. So in light of the national approval and acceptance, under law, that this is no longer the case, then his life and all others have no meaning or value, PERIOD.

Back in 1982, I watched my first Mexican presidential election. It included rallies, TV ads, lots of placards, and even a little space for the opposition. However, the result was known before election day. Everybody knew that the PRI´s candidate would win easily. And Mr. De La Madrid did exactly that. Today, no one really knows who will win. There are three major candidates: Mr. López Obrador, from the leftist Morena party; Mr. Meade from the incumbent PRI; and Mr. Anaya from the center-right PAN.

I have admired the management of Southwest Airlines ever since I first studied the company in 1975 as a student at Harvard Business School. The only other US airline that comes close to it in the quality of its management is Delta, which has a very different strategy and operational philosophy, but which, like SWA, executes its strategy with consistent excellence. When shrapnel (very likely a fan blade) from an uncontained engine failure pierced the fuselage of a flight from LaGuardia to Dallas Love Field, resulting in the awful, almost unimaginable death of one passenger by being partially sucked out

President Obama was always big on forcing bad things down the throat of the American voter and consumer. ´Time to eat your peas!´ he told Congress in 2011, foisting a massive hike in government spending on a Republican Congress in 2011. Obama was ´the good parent´ (to all us unruly, uppity young ´uns in the lowly electorate) and President Trump is all about eating candy, as Michelle Obama put it this year, in another example. And of course, there was Obamacare. One of the worst things Obama tried to foist on us, was in his executive orders to raise fuel standards on

New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book on Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, and one anecdote in particular from it was getting attention on Friday. It's from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to "Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager," per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton "didn't seem all that surprised," writes Chozick. Then the key Clinton quote: "'I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,' she said, now within

Residents in the San Francisco Bay Area are living along a fault that is a "ticking time bomb" that could generate an earthquake that could kill hundreds, according to a report released Wednesday.

A funny thing happened on the way to this week’s column — Sen. Jon Tester did something I liked. On Wednesday, Sen. Tester took part in a Senate Commerce Committee hearing where he blasted someone who is perhaps the least popular man in America. No, not Jeff Zuckerberg (he is SO last week!). I’m talking about Adrian Abramovitch. Chances are, you’ve never heard of Abramovitch, but even so, I am confident that — along with me and Sen. Tester — you don’t like him!

(Snip) "Racialized oppression and dehumanization is woven into the very fabric of our nation -- the effects of which can be seen in the lawful lynching of black and brown people by the police, and the mass incarceration of black and brown lives in the prison industrial complex," Kaepernick said.
