    very very sad. i can tell he was extremely depressed simply because of the mixture of benzodiazepines. there is NO need for that kind of benzo mixture. none. & no single doctor would prescribe that all at once…except a crooked one..which may have been the case. but my point is, being on a few different painkillers is ok because in small amounts its fine. i myself take more than one kind. BUT -the benzos he was taking all at once -not necessary. poor guy. someone shouldve listened & thats what no one did. it couldve saved his life. rip dj am…

If nothing else, their escapade at (large cprrooation)provides a wonderful marketing opportunity for you What other (large cprrooation) has restrooms clean enough where such fun could even be imagined?Have you looked at the Improv Everywhere website? They do so much toenliven NYC, that I wish I were there to play with them and I am 59years old, and a retired corporate executive. Remember, if life serves youa lemon, make lemonade!
