Hysterical over the Crazy

With the one year anniversary of the Virginia Tech event coming up, lazy reporters with nothing else to cover (e.g. the ongoing genocides in Darfur and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, rural pharmacies closing because of how Medicare Part D screws everyone except the drug companies, not enough celebutantes going on rampages, etc.) are not just focusing on the crazy for something that happened now, but are focusing on the crazy for something that happened a year ago.

In Hysterical over the Crazy I give you links to more studies than you had in study hall about how we don't commit more violent crimes than people who don't have brain cooties, yet we're portrayed as being the ones who are way more dangerous to be around. There are even bits about how we're way more likely to be the victims of violent crimes than the Pinks.

Updates to Crazy Meds 9 April 2008

  • I added the Mental Health news feed from Dr. Grohol's site to the contents frame. So just keep scrolling down until you find it. Dr. Gohol's page opens in the contents frame, so just expand it to read. Deal with my crappy web design. A new page just for that feature didn't make any sense, and plugging it onto every page didn't either. I know I suck. Don't expect design improvements any time soon.

  • I've added a translator gadget to a variety of .shtml pages, e.g. Invega. So you're no longer a slave to Anglo imperialism. I tried out the French version, as that's the one language that I have the best chance of reading all of the text and understanding at least 80% of what I read, and am pleased with the translation. Not too much franglais, and only a few things that were lost. Fortunately all of the technical stuff seems to make sense. It's my ranting around the real information that goes into Dada territory. Some other European languages don't look too bad. As for the languages in non-Roman scripts, you're on your own. If and when I update other pages I'll try to add this gadget to them as well. No promises.

  • I'm working with Google to resolve the annoying problem where searches don't return results for pages, just pages on the Crazy Meds Talk forum.
