Beyond tragic

This is just terrible. Mother of three commits suicide by water ingestion trying to win an expensive toy for her kids. Mom is gone, but you have free tickets to Friday's Justin Timberlake concert for coming in second. So that's a plus.

I don't think it's malice, just sheer callous stupidity that led to this. But the station is toast. I have no idea if those consent forms will protect them. Every time I race I sign a waiver that says, among many other things, I could die or get seriously hurt. I have no idea whether the woman's family has a case. I just feel bad for her kids.
