He visited friends and then killed himself? What the fuck?

You obviously don't know anything about people who are suicidal.

They tend to gather family and/or friends for 'one last hang out' before they kill themselves, which is something they already have planned to do.

A co-worker of mine from work invited a bunch of his friends (guys from work) over to play cards. After they left, he jumped out his 17th story window. He was depressed because his mom had passed away about a year before and he didn't take it well.

Not to speak ill of the dead, but the suicidal usualy are pretty selfish, in that they don't think much about what their actions will impact on their surviving loved ones.

The man was obviously troubled and needed help. It's a shame he felt he had no other way out.

I can't help thinking it should've been Kirk Cameron.

Well, Tracy Gold and Boner gone, so much for the Family Ties reunion.

I don't see why Boner's death would effect a Family Ties reunion.

And Tracey Gold is still very much alive.

He was not being selfish. When you get that depressed, it messes with your thought process. You have no idea what Andrew was thinking or feeling when he decided to take his own life. Often suicidal people think that their loved ones will be better off without them.

BTW, the thread title sucks.

E! "News" is trying to manufacture a controversy over the fact that the Koenig's didn't appear on Larry King last night.

^ It sounded like it was Larry King's fault, first pushing them out of their scheduled time slot, then pushing them back to the last segment of the show, then constantly going to commercial toward the end.

Re: Boner Bummer

I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I find the thread title is bordering on the offensive..

I'm not talking about the use of the word "Boner" btw, just the fact that anyone would bother to try and make a witty, snappy sounding headline pun when a man has died.

i never knew Richard Boner Stabone was Chekov's son. RIP Andrew. Sorry to make light of a sad situation, but i always wondered how standard and practices allowed his character's name to be called Boner, especially since he also went by Dick instead of Richard. Again sorry if that sounded insensitive, always wondered
rest in peace.
