Ivins not murdered

While I never believed that Dr. Ivins, the main suspect for the 2001 anthrax attacks, was murdered in a way to look like suicide so as to shut him up or set him up as a patsy, it did make me wonder a tiny bit. But such suspicions have been put to rest due to reports that Dr. Ivins wanted to die, given the way he explicitly said so in the hospital and tried to remove his tubes.

Of course, it's still possible that the report itself could be a fabrication or that he was somehow blackmailed into suicide, but for better or worse, I'm not that paranoid.
