Awful Way To Go


A man committed suicide by, gulp, jumping in front of a train in Krum (which used to have one heck of a restaurant, by the way). But a quote in the story could have been a poem or lyrics. Or I'm just crazy:

"As the train approached,
they saw him walking,
then running toward the tracks.
Then he stopped and they thought
he was playing games,
as people often do."

I'd jump in front of a train if I found myself walking through Krum too. It's one of the few towns worse than Decatur.

It was El Duce!! He was boozed and set up to die by Courtney. His side project band named " Courtney killed Kurt" pissed her off.
