Making News Instead of Reporting It

This actually made me laugh:

Donald Lowery, 52, walked into a BankSouth branch on Savannah’s suburban south side with the shotgun in his belt and demanded money, said William Kirkconnell, the FBI’s supervisory senior special agent in Savannah. . . .

Lowery, 52, left his job earlier this year as a reporter at the Savannah Morning News, where he covered neighboring Effingham County. According to his profile on the newspaper’s web site, Lowery had worked there since 1989.

    A guy lost his job, more than likely is having a nervous breakdown, and robs a bank. This is no excuse for his actions but I do feel for his family as well as a 52 year old guy out of work. And you think this is funny? Why?

    I wonder if Dale Cardwell will rob a bank to fund his campaign? He is obviously having a mid-life crisis (but can not afford to buy a porsche) too. When will it turn into a nervous breakdown though?

    the lowery story is somewhat amusing on the surface but kinda dark when peel the layers back a little–not to be too gossipy but his leaving the sav’h paper was a little messy and he has had the kind of health issues that might make one into a desparate man

    Yeah John, I laughed at the thought of a reporter, who probably at one point covered a crime beat, becoming the criminal.

    I have no doubt the situation is tragic for him and his family, but I laughed. Deal with it.
