Quote of the week

My colleagues and I often care for patients suffering from hallucinations, prophesying, and claiming to speak with God, among other symptoms—in mental health care, it’s sometimes very difficult to tell apart religious belief from mental illness…. Our conclusions frequently stem from the behaviors we see before us. Take an example of a man who walks into an emergency department, mumbling incoherently. He says he’s hearing voices in his head, but insists there’s nothing wrong with him. He hasn’t used any drugs or alcohol. If he were to be evaluated by mental health professionals, there’s a good chance he might be diagnosed with a psychotic disorder like schizophrenia. But what if that same man were deeply religious? What if his incomprehensible language was speaking in tongues?

Useless but priceless information…

Before FNB irritated the President and his advisors, it irritated the rest of us by sponsoring widely advertised talks about how one should love one’s money, by one Suze Orman. That woman’s prattle about how one would become rich if one only thought about it, more seemed particularly galling in a country where many poor people go hungry at night.

In any case, now we hear that, Suze Orman, the financial guru to millions, is a lesbian in a committed relationship of seven years.

Money quote:

Orman says they’d like to get married, and both “have millions of dollars in our name. It’s killing me that upon my death, K.T. is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa.”

Maybe if she just though positively she’ll manage to change the US into a wonderfully homo-tolerant society.and before you know it, same-sex marriage will be allowed in all 50 states.
