Sympathy for suicide attempt depends on if there are victims Re Oct. 22 letter, “Failed suicide attempt merited treatment, not arrest and time in jail”: Judi Weatherhead needs to analyze all the facts of teen suicide. If the suicide and/or attempt involves people/property/animals, then jail is definitely warranted. Compassion “should be given” to a person who has severe mental health problems and believes that suicide is the only alternative. But how about the victims involved ...

"Doesn’t he realize that a large number of the parents of whom he speaks have either alcohol/drug or abuse issues and have exhausted any desire to put the effort required to parent"?

Then the children should be taken from the parents. Put down the Kool-Aid. You are believing Liberal LIES> Check the real facts.

No need to rededicate Kosciuszko Bridge - Why would a name be given to something then not refer to it by its given name? There are many "strange" names for places in the Capital District but most people seem to correctly pronounce the names. For example: All-bany not Al-bany, Laythim not La-tham. You would think that after 30 yrs. the locals would learn to pronounce the name of the bridge just through repetition. How many times does a person have to hear the name before the brain remembers? I've been here for only 3 yrs. and can pronounce Kosh-Chew-Shko. There's a Kosciuszko Bridge on the BQE in New York City that the locals call the Kosh-Chew-Shko Bridge. Are people here that lazy or dumb? I don't get it.

wmarincic: "Then the children should be taken from the parents."
Then who takes care of them? With no abortions available, you're talking about an awful lot of kids.
Broken ones at that.

patricca - Do have a source that is factual, or at least cites specific facts? Providing a link to an opinion blog to counter opinion offers nothing.
