    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Columbia University Professor Bruce Robbins says his 25-year-old son, Andreas, left a suicide note in his Stuyvesant Town bedroom saying he was going to jump off the George Washington Bridge on Monday night — and hasn’t been seen since.
    Robbins said he and his wife, Elsa Stamatopoulou, learned about the note Andy left on Monday evening, after Andy’s girlfriend notified the cops.
    “The note said that he wanted his savings to be given to an organization that fights depression and fight suicide and that he wanted his ashes strewn in the Mediterranean, which is where his mother is from,” said Robbins, who teaches literature at the Ivy League school.
    Andy, who is 6 feet 1, was caught on surveillance footage leaving his apartment Monday at 7:45 p.m. without his cell phone or bank card.

    His father has posted more information on his fb about the headline from this article...Protesters interfere with man's search for suicidal son.
    It doesn't sound very promising for Andy but I hope he can be found.

    My mom mentioned this case to me and it turns out I know this man's girlfriend from back in high school. I was just looking it up tonight and this was the only "new" article I could find:

    Does it say where in Manhattan he was from? I'll keep a look out, but if he left a suicide note...

    Hope he turns up okay.

    The missing son of an Ivy League professor was found floating in the East River Wednesday, two months after police told his father they had no time to search for his suicidal son.
    RIP Andy.
