Crystal Cathedral

Early this morning, the conductor of the Crystal Cathedral's orchestra committed suicide.

I have a good friend (Heather's younger sister Allison) who works at the Crystal Cathedral Academy. Their older sister used to work at the Cathedral as well. One of the families at my home church is involved in the Glory of Christmas every year, and was likely there at the Cathedral when the whole episode started:

The first shots were fired less than two hours before the scheduled start of the cathedral's annual "Glory of Christmas" holiday show.

Let me say that I've never been enamored with Schuller & the Cathedral. But this really hits a little too close to home for me. Kinda scary.
