Talk about Failing - when you fail at Suicide - well you are a real loser - Failed Greed!

Russell Wasendorf Sr.

At Peregrine, fraud charges, shock and missing money

By all accounts Russell Wasendorf seemed to be doing better than ever. He was organizing fundraising events, making plans to open a new Italian restaurant and overseeing a growing commodity trading firm that had put his hometown of Cedar Falls, Iowa, on the map.
Everything changed early Monday morning when some employees of Mr. Wasendorf’’s firm, Peregrine Financial Group Inc., found him slumped in his car after a failed suicide attempt.

That morning, what do you suppose he saw in the mirror?

"And indeed there will be time
To wonder, “Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?”
Time to turn back and descend the stair,
With a bald spot in the middle of my hair—        
(They will say: “How his hair is growing thin!”)
My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,
My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin—
(They will say: “But how his arms and legs are thin!”)
Do I dare        
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse."*

goodbye mama!
