    I say it's spinach, and I say the hell with it.

      It's easy to arm chair quarterback someone else's decision.
      Unless you live their life - it's wrong to do so.

      Throwing his wife off the balcony was wrong but we don't know this man; we don't know what his life was like, and judging without knowing is foolish.

      No one knows what they'll do when their back is to the wall until it happens. One can assume anything - but we know what assuming does, don't we?

      I hope it never happens to any of us that we find that murder looks like the best option and most humane option. That is a tough life.

      Where is the compassion for the man? He tried to the right thing until it broke him.

      The woman had it easy. She doesn't have to suffer any more. His suffering is going to last a long, long time.

      I'm the person your mother warned you about.

        Wife incurred repeated falls and traumatic brain syndrome. That's way too many red flags.

        I say it's spinach, and I say the hell with it.

          Often do not have good coordination and balance.

          You'd yell just as loud if he tied her to a chair for her own safety.

          I'm not him. I wasn't there. I will withhold judgment because I'm not him and I wasn't there.

          It must be nice to live in a black and white world. Don't you ever find it a little rigid, though?
