Ned Vizzini, author of 'It's Kind of a Funny Story,' commits suicide at 32
Ned Vizzini, who shot to fame at a young age for his teenage novels focusing on youth depression and anxieties, has died.

In his books, Vizzini openly talked about his struggle with depression.

He died Thursday of blunt impact injuries to the head, torso and extremities. "The manner of death was suicide," the New York City medical examiner's office said. The office did not immediately say how Vizzini committed suicide.

He was worse than a dog, a despicable human scum, he gambled and took drugs too. He was even related to Kim Jong Un! (You can't believe everything that comes out of Pyongyang, but the guy is dead.)

Ichiro "George" Azumano has died at age 95. He was born in Portland, Oregon and was serving in the U.S. Army when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. He was discharged and sent to an internment camp in Idaho with his family. Despite that painful experience, Azumano spent much of the rest of his life improving U.S.-Japanese relations.

Statesmen of the caliber of Nelson Mandela may come once in a generation. Post-apartheid South Africa would never have been a successful nation, even with its problems, were it not for Nelson Mandela. His example of forgiveness after having been imprisoned for 27 years helped affect national reconciliation.
