lawn chair

I've just posted a new strange news story: man flies in a lawn chair. It's accompanied by a video and some activities and should be a lot of fun. One word of warning - the life story of the central character ends tragically with his suicide, which was largely unrelated to the events described.
I wasn't quite sure how to deal with this and a similar scenario in
Lightning Strikes. To ignore it (as I did with LS) seems disrespectful but so does a casual mention at the end. Advice welcomed.
I've also finished re-editing
Raining Cows, which now has an accompanying video news clip. I've switched to present tense narration for greater immediacy and ease of comprehension.
