five suicides – NOT

This is a correction of a recent post.

In that post I incorrectly recalled that, once upon a time, the Duluth School District had five suicides in a short period of time. If I had read the old news story linked in the post I would have discovered my error. Jana Hollingsworth who wrote the story sent me the correction. I thank her. Her story reported that five students died but in Proctor not Duluth and only one of them was a suicide prompted in all likelyhood by the other deaths.

Jana did give me credit for writing a “timely” post. I thank her again. The post was, however, grossly misleading in its facts if not in the concerns which motivated it.
