Self-Immolation Comes To Ohio

While we have grown used to reading of Asian citizens setting themselves on fire in protest (most recently here), news that a 58-year-old man lit himself on fire in front of Ohio City Hall in Columbus is shocking. There are no details as to the reason for this sad act, but as ABC6 reports, the man has been transported to OSU Medical Center in critical condition.

Police are investigating the incident as a possible suicide attempt, according to local TV-station WSYX.
