Is there something in the water this week? Seems like I’m finding crazy all over the place. As such, I find the only appropriate response is to share some sad news and scoff at it in a completely distasteful way. You’re all down with that, right?

In Pursuit of Happiness, radio show hosts John Littig and Lynne Rosen were found dead in their apartment on Monday in what appears to have been a double suicide. Renowned psychotherapist (Rosen) and teacher (Littig), they also founded the Why Not Now life coaching business:
Founded by Lynne Rosen and John Littig, Why Not Now provides focused life coaching designed to help foster and encourage your inner strengths, identify hidden and untapped resources, and put you confidently on the path to designing the life you’ve always wanted to live.
“It’s a funny thing about life: if you refuse to accept anything but the very best, you very often get it”
W. Somerset Maugham

I suppose it’s clear they didn’t find happiness in telling others how to find happiness.

I can only imagine what their last conversation must’ve been like.
