160px-tom_harkin_official_portraitI find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?

This morning the Advocate reports on yet another suicide of a young gay man. 19 year old Raymond Chase, who attended Johnson & Wales in Providence, Rhode Island hung himself in his dorm room on Wednesday. According to Autostraddle?

Raymond Chase was a person who liked Harry Potter and Rugrats and was a member of the popular facebook group ?I cant spell ?bananas? without singing hollaback girl.? He?s not number five in a week of suicides, he?s a unique special person with friends and family who are devastated by his loss. He?s a gay college kid who sure seems happy but not that day, or maybe he?d never been, and something happened or something had always happened and he couldn?t do it.
