CA - UC-Santa Cruz chancellor commits suicide
Shocked community leaders wondered Sunday whether the pressure of the job prompted the apparent suicide of the University of California, Santa Cruz chancellor.
Denton apparently jumped from a 43-story luxury apartment building in downtown San Francisco, police and university officials said. Her longtime partner, Gretchen Kalonji, has an apartment in the building, according to property records.
Ok, her partner Gretchen? And look at the picture of this person, I think it's a man...anyone? A think a lot more was going on.

I don't think it's really necessary to point out the obvious here. Or to disparage the deceased.

I thought it was a man, too. It could be that she is a transgender. I know it was mentioned in the article I read that she supports gay, lesbian and transgender groups.
I became interested in this story today esepcially after seeing what happen to Gwen Araujo in October 2002 and a recent movie made about her on Lifetime.
I didn't interpret Christine's post to mean anything negative.
I think it's a topic worth discussion, and a real tragedy.
Why did the chancellor apparently kill herself, and what led up to it?Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

I am sad for this person that they felt the only answer was suicide....what couldn't they 'work through'? What is so bad that people end their LIFE? Very sad to be that unhappy or hurt or scared..
