David Foster Wallace commits suicide

Wallace’s latest book was a paperback version of his 2000 “Rolling Stone” magazine profile of Republican presidential contender John McCain, titled “McCain’s Promise: Aboard the Straight Talk Express With John McCain and a Whole Bunch of Actual Reporters, Thinking About Hope.” “McCain himself has obviously changed; his flipperoos and weaselings on Roe v. Wade, campaign finance, the toxicity of lobbyists, Iraq timetables, etc. are just some of what make him a less interesting, more depressing political figure now — for me, at least,” he told the Wall Street Journal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And there you have a motive!

I mean, this kid was young, healthy, a successful writer, a tenured professor... hardly the profile of someone desperate enough to hang themselves.
