Inspired by a comment on my last tale, and a few hours of listening to music, here's Sgt Pepper.

We have found a record number of anomalous objects in the past year,
That's far from comforting, since it means that a record number of anomalous objects have been spawning recently.
Just a couple bits are annoying me:
The very idea that committing suicide is somehow going to improve our situation is absolutely ludicrous.
If you just remember that, we can nip this suicide thing in the bum, and get back to making the world a better place.
Pretty much sums up all the issues I have with this article and dear ol' Pepper, he treats suicide like it's a fad among researchers rather than a serious situation. Not once does he suggest seeking psychological help or joining a peer group for support, instead he pretty much says "think positive and get back to work."
I don't see any reason for this document, I don't like the author (Sgt. Pepper), and I just don't like how it handles the subject.
Unless you're actively going for "upper management doesn't understand their employees at all", I'd suggest adding in some kind of suggestion as to what to do if one is considering suicide. I mean, there's a mental health evaluation department in the Foundation, right? This comes off as, "Don't kill yourself: life is wonderful!" which doesn't really work if you're honestly trying to stop someone contemplating suicide from killing themselves.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who was expecting the creation of a "Lonley Hearts Club Band" led by Sgt. Pepper and a bunch of depressed foundation workers, but you took it somewhere else and did a great job.

Yeah, but it would be hard, since they already lost Billy Shears (Would have been 28 today if he lived).
