You mean, too bad that he didn't pull a Plaxico. Shooting himself
would have taught him a lesson. And then there's the possibility that
he wasn't the only person in the theater who was strapped. Frivolity
might then have ensued.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
