The Scranton multiple homicide-suicide that destroyed the Michael Shirley family has certainly been one of our most commented-on stories this week. Most of our comments have come from people who were their neighbors or friends. I wanted to open up this very sad story/ tragedy for all of us to think about. From what you've seen of our coverage of the story, why in the world to you think Michael Shirley would have slain all three of his children, before dying of smoke inhalation before he could shoot himself?
Are times that bad? Please share your condolences and your thoughts with us here. Ralph
(A rosary for the Shirley children will be held Friday night at 7:00, with funeral services for all three of them Saturday morning at 11.) rh
