It is horrible.

I agree about the senseless killings (is there every any that makes real sense?).

What I can't figure out is if there are more of them or we hear about all of them very quickly and easily. I could be persuaded of either side of that argument. Sigh.

I could have continued my discussed on this continuing problem, but I am sure the mods and Charlton Heston would object.

virginia senator creigh deeds was featured on 60 minutes tonight, addressing the desperate need for funding and psychiatric facilities for the long-neglected mentally ill population of this country. in december, senator deeds was nearly stabbed to death by his mentally disturbed son, just one day after he had been denied psychiatric placement in a hospital, for lack of beds. the son shot and killed himself after the altercation with his father.
this is just one example of a highly regarded, well-connected and prosperous congressman who was unable to secure mental health assistance for his family. we, as a nation, cannot afford to continue ignoring the elephant....

Saw that too, Vit. Mental health really should be a top priority.

Well, they did it again. I had an appointment at 2:15. I was ready and downstairs by 1:45. Transportation never showed up. The appointment was for a consultation for surgery. This time I am not going to say anything to them. Only because I really don't feel like going there. I don't know where the fault lies. With Winthrop or the transportation company that has the contract. I have the feeling it is with Winthrop. They probably forgot to notify the transportation company. As usual. Oh well, time for a nap.
