No way!

"“Builder” to the stars #BenKrupinski, who has crafted the Hamptons homes of #MarthaStewart and Billy Joel, is at the center of a bitter family feud with his daughter Laura — who astonishingly accused him of having an affair with Martha."

[2] This just interests me...

One of the projects #BenKrupinski took on 2012 was the restoration of the Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station in Amagansett, New York. It was built in 1902.

[3] #BenKrupinski "was sold on the restoration project after his wife, Bonnie Krupinski, persuaded him in June to see a staged reenactment by the life-saving station committee of the landing of four Nazi saboteurs on the beach just down the road."

#EllieSouter didn't "die"--she committed suicide. Shocking thay her tragic loss is framed as a natural passing.

She chose her 18th birthday to exit this life. Her memory deserves more than #suicide hotline numbers tacked on at the end. Soutter was a star & role model. Do better.
We need to discuss #suicide
more, not less. Pretending that Ellie Soutter just died instead of having a plan to kill herself on her birthday is bad journalism. Her ex talked about her ongoing depression. Teens are under special stresses, especially those in the spotlight. 2/
Teens are also susceptible to copycat suicide--romanticizing the suicide of an 18 yr old star is dangerous. The suffering people endure prior to killing themselves and the suffering their loved ones endure after their passing is extreme and demands and deserves discussion.

This isn't the longer piece I had been working on, and it's totally rushed, but it is important. The death of #AnthonyBourdain just got a whole lot more surreal.

Why? For starters, his final segment of Parts Unknown included a Bhutanese death ritual. This is massively significant in and of itself, but who he performed it with is equally important. None other than #DarrenAronofsky

What's so special about #DarrenAronofsky?

He is the Director of the film, Mother!

Movie poster for that film is.... telling, to say the least.

1. Lots of people suffer from depression. I used to suffer from it. Although it last descended on me decades ago, I still feel it in the back of my head, seeping out in the shadows of my work. It’s not an easy thing to understand, but I can try to tell you a little more...
2. The overriding mental condition of someone in a severe depressed state is one of utter futility. Nothing is worth it. Nothing has meaning. There is no point in anything. You may escape for a moment, but the dark mist is all around. Until it decides to lift, nothing matters.
3. It isn’t the same as sadness. It isn’t being fearful. It’s the darkest, loneliest nothing. When it’s especially bad, there is no hope. That’s when you think of ending it. Everyone who’s been in that place has thought of suicide. Everyone. Some take action. Most pull back.

You didn't know #AnthonyBourdain. You know nothing about his life, torments, demons, nothing. You didn't know #KateSpade either. Watch the torrents of albeit genuine but odd shows of public grief to two complete strangers but nothing for the 20 vets who commit suicide daily.
You want to mourn #suicide? Mourn this. In 2013, the US Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010: roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides.
