Mention Floyd Dakil‘s name and old timers will recall Dance, Franny, Dance or days of Irving Harrigan (aka Ron Chapman) reigning supreme at KLIF. Unfortunately, Floyd’s name will now be associated with the word, “suicide.” It was learned that he committed suicide Saturday.
Yes, times are tough. No, make that “really tough.” For this reason, please be observant of others. Don’t just ask, “How are you?” Wait for the answer and see if something doesn’t seem quite right.
Remember the Suicide and Crisis Center (214.828.1000) is available 24/7. We have added it to our web roll on the right side of the page. If you have any questions, then you need to use it.
Also, a gentle reminder that Julie Hersh, who has dealt dramatically with the issue of suicide, will do a book signing at Stanley Korshak this Friday from 9 to 11 a.m. If you’re a little skittish about discussing the subject, you just might to drop by and hear her discuss Struck by Living from 9:15 to 11 a.m.
