    Ah, Great... Living in the Utah is like being a rat treading water? That image is sure to increase business investment and tourism!

    I guess if a person or family struggles with depression, the nicest thing we can do is to tell them to move to coast. The coast of Oregon is nice, if you can get used to the rain.

    I've heard this before and it makes sense. I know that it isn't the only factor in depression and suicide, but I believe that it's a significant reason for the elevated incidents we've seen in the Rocky Mountain area.

    Occasionally I've heard people say that suicides are linked to religion, but studies show the opposite: that the more religious someone is the less likely they are to attempt suicide.
