Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

Damn, I was holding out hope. How truly awful.

I think there is a terrile lack of awareness in general about depression, and how much of a hell it can be to live with or to love someone who suffers from it.

This is just sad beyond words. My thoughts are with his family and everyone who knew him.

Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

It's always sad for a parent to outlive their child. And for someone who has much, to throw away all. Suicide is rather poignant for me since my nephew tried it several years ago (almost successful), shot to the head. Now doing well, going to college, and generally happy. Better read than dead.

Is there any way for the board as a whole to send its regrets? Walter is beloved here for his best known role in ST and his Bester role in B5 His loss is tremendous and suddon.

And as an aside to all, suicide is rarely a good answer, unless you're really old with an incurable illness, there's an answer to any problem. And unless you're around, you won't find them.


Ever.

Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

You're right, fisheggs... but the definition of depression, basically, is not believing anything you just said. When people are depressed, they don't think they're "throwing it all away;" they don't think they have anything at all.

Not defending suicide, of course -- it's just that in my experience, telling a depressed person "You have so much to live for!" does less than nothing to help.

I don't know of a way to send condolences from the board as a whole, but his official site has a forum that anyone can post a note to Walter and family without registering.

Re: Andrew Koenig is missing

Before the body was found, I was watching Larry King, when Walter and his wife were supposed to come on, but they had left, without explanation. I found out that they left because Larry kept pushing back their appearance, so they would only have about two minutes air time, and they didn't think that was enough. I agree with them completely. WTF was Larry thinking?
