I don't think any healthy individual should kill themself. If a city council is being that unreasonable, put your house on the market and move. You might take a financial loss, but that is little compared with what your family goes through.

Suicide is not a effective form of protest. There have been one case in which a man doused himself with gas and set fire to himself in protest of the Iraq War, and another in which a man shot himself at the WTC site after Bush was re-elected. Neither of these instances had any impact on the debate over the war. People rightfully call the victim's sanity into question whenever this happens.
