ABC News: A Grisly New Orleans Murder Mystery Takes Another Twist
New Orleans is still reeling from news this week that a bartender reportedly strangled his girlfriend, dismembered her body, and cooked some of the body parts on his stove before jumping to his death.

Now, it turns out, he was an Iraq war hero.

An act that transmits the message We Are Not Okay, confirmation of my assertion (often made by the media, psychiatrists, etc) that mental health is a dwindling resources here in NOLA. Ph Fred’s words in the previous posting are well said, we are in the land of “if,” and sometimes that can send one over the brink of madness.

An Iraq War Hero ™, sounds like double dipping on the post traumatic stress disorder to me. From the atrocities of our “war,” to the devastation of America’s Forgotton City he skirted the edges of sanity until he finally snapped. Bloody hell.

as the current ad for South Park says, “Dear God, what next?”
