How We'd Commit Suicide
At present writing we have no desire to leave this vale of tears and
hurl ourselves upon Abraham's bosom but if we should desire to do so, we
wouldn't lean up against a loaded gun and then pull the trigger, as many
do. Neither would we eat a solid meal of rat poison, blow out the
gas, drink concentrated lye, sit down on the lap of a buzz saw, smoke cigarettes
or call a Kentuckian a liar or poor judge of whiskey. We would simply
get out an edition of our paper in which we would strive to the best of
our ability to print the plain, unvarnished, square-toed truth as we understand
it, and then calmly await the end.
