Loren,

Your link to the Globe is inoperative, they stuck a break ie, br, in it!

Here is another try at it

http://www.boston.com/news/world/asia/articles/2005/01/16/skorea_grasps_for_ways_to_tackle_surge_in_suicides/

The other thing to do is go to Google news and search korea and suicide

Having read your book, "The Copycat Effect" and all of the articles on your blog, my question is what are the deeper processes that are involved? What is going on when suicide is triggered? What is the role played by twilight language?
