Martin Manley killed himself. This in and of itself isn't so unique. Thousands of suicides happen without much notice. What makes his suicide bizarre is that he created a website to explain his reasons for his actions.
Hey you fine, beautiful people on the internets (and, why not, you ugly people can read this, too): 10cities10years.wordpress.com is now 10cities10years.com. All the same blathering bullshit, but now with a shorter URL. Just in time for the holidays! You're welcome!
