In what appears to be the new style, Yuri Kravchenko, former interior minister of the Ukraine, committed suicide by shooting himself twotimesin the head. Gary Webb also managed this feat, but I hope prospective suicides don't start to take this as some kind of dare, thinking that the old one-shot suicide is somehow passé. It could turn ugly, with people attempting three- or even four-shot suicides. Suicide is not a competition! Hunter Thompson managed to beat everybody, managing to shoot himself in the head with a non-functioning gun that produced no sound of a gun shot.
