WASHINGTON — A security guard at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Smithsonian Institution officials say the guard shot himself with his service revolver shortly after 3 p.m. Monday in a locker room in the basement level of the building. Officials say the public did not witness the shooting, and no one else was injured. The guard’s name has not been released.


well shit the bed
a friend of mine was down there measuring dinosaur bones today. i wonder if he got to inspect this guy's skull.


What's black and white and red all over?
If I wasn't guarding Air and Space, I'd shoot myself, too.


Bastard coated bastard w/ bastard filling
That art would make any sane person want to blow their brains out


Wackbag's Best Conservative
The Hirshorn has some good stuff time to time, generally it's on the stupid end of modern art.

See? This is why we should limit the bullets these guys are getting!

Who needs bullets to protect shitty art? It's a Kwanspiracy!


Supreme Champion!!!!!
Had a Statie do it on me about 8 months ago. Holding brains in while holding a skull that feels like a soft boiled egg...not fun.
