    The irony is breathtaking.

    The fact is, 5000 people (+/-?) died on Sept. 11 2001, which is most unfortunate. However, here we are, over a decade later, and the mainstream media continues to treat this tragedy as “breaking news”, with umpteen “special reports” on every channel, all day long, and yet over 30,000 Americans (SIX TIMES as many victims!) die by their own hand EVERY YEAR, but very little (if any? ) mention is made about that highly avoidable tragedy.

    WTF???

    Our once-great nation really needs to re-examine their priorities!
