O. Henry, by way of South Central.

By now, you're probably familiar with the train derailment in LA this morning. Developing news brings us what surely qualifies as the most pathetically unfortunate decision of the day:

GLENDALE – A commuter train smashed into an SUV left on a crossing by a suicidal man early Wednesday, derailed and crashed into another Metrolink train, killing 10 people and injuring more than 100, authorities said.

The SUV driver changed his mind about suicide and left the vehicle before it was hit, Police Chief Randy Adams said. The man will be charged with homicide, he said.

The disappointment is so utterly palpable.
