You see, darlings, the fourteenth floor was intended for the most violently dangerous and hopelessly psychotic people our country manages to produce. There were some of that type up there until some years back, when the last one got really old and died. He was all alone up there because for many years the state has been sending a lot of the truly dangerous psychotics to prisons where they can be properly stored. But only the ones who break a big law while they're being truly crazy. I suppose that makes sense. Then there's that other little mitigating factor; most dangerously psychotic people kill themselves. That's REALLY easy in the USA because we have lots and lots of GUNS. So the number of seriously insane people that wind up in prisons is becoming bigger and bigger and the number that are stopped in time is getting smaller.
The TVs are still off and the computer was too until this morning so I just found out about Sandy Hook. Even psychotics like me cry when children die. Dr. Idiot wanted to give me a shot but changed his mind. I've just been sitting here with wet eyes wondering why that sick young man had lots and lots of guns in his house. How did that happen? How come NOBODY was smart enough to snatch that guy up and put him on the fourteenth floor? There's a bunch of people blogging about mental health care and intervention on the Sandy Hook stories. Everybody should read that! From what I can tell there's a LOT of folks with violently disturbed kids who can't find help for them. Now THAT is INSANE! Everybody should have help when they need it!
