In one of those annual heartbreaking, tear-jerking, guilt-inducing holiday season stories of others’ misfortunes, a 50-year-old was discovered dead last night, “dangling from one of the clothing donation boxes behind the Salvation Army Church.” Police, calling it an “unfortunate and tragic death by misadventure,” believe he may have been trying to fish out some warm clothes or spend the night inside. Count your blessings.
