11 July 2006
An explosion demolished a four-storey building in Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York on Monday, in an incident which police said might have been triggered by a suicidal doctor going through an acrimonious divorce.
Interesting plan. Blow the home up so the ex-wife can’t have it or the proceeds from its sale.
He recently wrote a 14-page angry e-mail, apparently addressing his ex-wife. “You always wanted me to sell the house. I always told you ‘I will leave the house only if I am dead.’ You ridiculed me. You should have taken it seriously,” he wrote in the e-mail.
Coupled with Darren Mack’s actions the other week, it seems the divorce courts have start crossing a line – ex-wives wasted, judges shot, buildings blown up. Goes to show that us men, when pushed far enough, will push back. Hard.
Update 16 July: Dr. Bartha dies in hospital. Poor bloke. Another casualty of the divorce courts.

It’s not exactly PC, but when we look back on this time are people going to say something like “if men were so unhappy, why weren’t there riots in the street?”
or “men must be pussies for just taking it”.
It’s bad, I know, but reports like this bring a smile to my face.

Let’s hope he canceled the insurance policy before hand.
