I have a global timer thread that cycles an event every 20 minutes.

When I stop the program via (Ctrl-C), this thread doesn't die.

How can I stop him?

According to the threading docs, I can't :
"Python's Thread class supports a subset of the behavior of Java's Thread
class; currently,
there are no priorities, no thread groups, and threads cannot be destroyed,
suspended, resumed, or interrupted"

Whats up with that?
