Wall Street on Parade: [D]uring the annual Cherry Blossom Festival celebrating springtime in the Nation's Capitol, a 22-year-old man took his own life with a gun on the Capitol grounds with a protest sign taped to his hand. According to the Washington Post, the sign read: "Tax the one percent." The Chicago Tribune reported that "[Leo P.] Thornton's parents filed a missing persons report on the morning of April 11 after he never came home from work on April 10, Lincolnwood Deputy Police Chief John Walsh said."

The Washington Post headlined the story with this: "Rhythms of Washington Return after Illinois Man's Suicide Outside Capitol." The message he delivered to his Congress -- tax the one percent-- has yet to be explored by any major news outlet in America in connection with this tragedy.
