To appease the gods

2013-01-12 07:28:53.496467-08 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Union City man jumps into mineshaft to ‘appease the gods’. He survived, but what stood out was this quote from Gerry Blair, a Coconino County Arizona sheriff’s spokesman:

“He said that he was trying to appease the gods,” Blair said. “It seems like we may be dealing with a mental condition as well. … Basically all we know is what he told us.”

"It seems like we may be dealing with a mental condition as well." Ya think?
