Surreal and sad

- It was bad enough before any mention of brainwashing or forced medication.

- It was bad enough before learning that, in Virginia, there were 20,000 cases of "civil commitment" per year.

- It was bad enough before John Whitehead reported that, as of this case making the news, veterans have been contacting the Rutherford Institute from around the country saying that, like Raub, they also had been unlawfully sent to psych wards.

It pertained to a different issue (the never-ending Afghanistan war), but I'm reminded of this quote by an Army vet: "All the 'support the troops' stuff is bumper sticker deep."

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
