Stress and Suicide

Patricia Sullivan

One of the saddest stories in today's Washington Post outlines the suicide of David B. Kellermann, the Freddie Mac executive who was found dead yesterday. Overstressed, under the pressure of turning the housing giant around, and a long-time employee committed to the agency's success, Mr. Kellerman lost money and privacy. No matter how angry one is at the role of financial executives in the collapse of the world economy, no reasonable person could wish such a tragic end to any one of them.

It's a sad state of affairs when businessmen are trying to do the right thing, and the government is forcing them to do the wrong thing. Mr. Kellerman, and the other executives at Freddie and Fannie have lost everything they worked for during their careers. So sad.
