    It’s a myth that suicides peak this time of year. Research shows people are less likely to end their lives between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you’re looking to blame a holiday for pushing desperate souls over the brink, hang it on the Easter bunny. Inexplicably,...

    It’s not easy being a news junkie these days. The ISIS crisis is reason enough to unplug the TV and mute the breaking news alerts forever. These jihadists, too merciless for al-Qaeda, have beheaded, raped and burned people alive. But they were just getting warmed...
