I know some of this from beyond the news story.
He was medically barred from night flight. Paul was depressed. I know about the payment. Men commit suicide 3x as often as women. No one cares. Everyone makes a joke of misandry as though men have it so great. If that were true, why the 3x figure?
It was a breathtaking lapse in judgement, so the ace of the base said. I think he didn't care if he lived or died.
On the night in question the clouds were so low they obscured the tops of streetlights.

Ever tried to fly at night in a plane of that vintage? The instrument lighting is poor at best. It is made to not affect night vision. In other words, be extremely dim. Not a good match for 70 year-old eyes.

Discussions on the field laid the blame for the death on the wife's attorney. Yet, the wife could have said no, give him enough to live on. I'm reminded of something Black Elk said,
I did not see anything, in New York 1886, to help my people. I could see that the Wasichus [white man] did not care for each other the way our people did before the nation's hoop was broken. They would take everything from each other if they could, and so there were some who had more of everything than they could use, while crowds of people had nothing at all and maybe were starving. This could not be better than the old ways of my people.

Problem is with divorce, participants believe it is unfair. Both parties feel cheated. That's because two households are more expensive than one.

For every story of a man ground down to dust by the process there is probably another on the woman's side. Yet, from what I've seen the tradition of the law, pre-dating the era of the working wife, and the feminist take to prisoners mentality have made men destitute, especially when their income goes down with no relief from the courts.

Not all men fight back, and with the way it is in this state, if you don't you're doomed. Anyone who has had the misfortune of being a party in a civil matter knows that the process is the product. Deep pockets wins. You have to be able to outlast your opponent emotionally and financially. It's war. If you don't have the resources or stomach for it, you'll never get to the judge, or to the approximation of a fair settlement. It will drive you under. Men go into a cave, lack support of close friends too often, don't call the doctor or the therapist and don't live as long. Silence surrounds the problem and your ridicule is not helping.
