Suicide in DC: Capitol on Lockdown

Suicide in DC: Capitol on Lockdown

The Capitol building in Washington, DC, is on lockdown at this time, after shots were heard, and man killed himself on the West Front of the building. Authorities are also investigating a suitcase the dead man left on the West Terrace of the Capitol, as well as his car.

The entire Capitol Building and Visitors’ Center is closed as a precautionary measure. An unnamed federal official claimed that “There are no indications at this point of terrorism.”

If it was a terrorist act, it wasn’t well-planned. Lawmakers are still on their two-week spring break and are not to return to work until Monday.

Kim is a pint-sized patriot who packs some big contradictions. She is a Baby Boomer who never became a hippie, an active Republican who first registered as a Democrat (okay, it was to help a sorority sister's father in his run for sheriff), and a devout Lutheran who practices yoga. Growing up in small-town Indiana, now living in the Kansas City metro, Kim is a conservative Midwestern gal whose heart is also in the Seattle area, where her eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live. Kim is a working speech pathologist who left school system employment behind to subcontract to an agency, and has never looked back. She describes her conservatism as falling in the mold of Russell Kirk's Ten Conservative Principles. Don't know what they are? Google them!
