Y'all have put me under. ... I'm out of here

I guess this is one way to deal with a city council...

This past week, in Clarksville, Tennessee, Ronald "Bo" Ward, owner of Bo's Barber Shop, went before the city council to get his property rezoned as commercial. According to the AP story, he told the council that "the rezoning would increase his property value, allowing him to secure a loan to offset debt he incurred when he expanded his shop."

His request was denied by a 5 to 7 vote. After the vote, he stood up and approached the council and said, "Y'all have put me under. ... I'm out of here." He then pulled out a handgun and shot himself in the head.

That'll show those ungrateful politicians... for sure...
