My thoughts on "I am Adam Lanza's Mother"

I'm a few days behind the curve, between a sick family and work.  I just read the post by Liza Long here - I am Adam Lanza's Mother 

There is a lot that I agree with here.  First, there appears to be very little help for those with mental health issues.  At my agency, we have housed many  misdemeanor inmates who have not had the mental facilities or family to get help.  The deputies will arrest person's with mental issues as opposed to getting them a Temporary Detainment Order.  Once they are incarcerated, mental health will take their sweet time to get to them because, as an inmate, they are no longer a threat to the public and we won't allow them to be a threat to themselves.

We have a handful of transients that we see on a regular basis.  They get arrested. We get them and they are unable to take care of themselves.  We get them medicated and they "return to our world."  By the time they are able to go to court, they are found time served.  And then, on their own, either they can't afford their medication or they feel that they don't need their medication and the vicious cycle starts all over again.

Here's an interesting video I found, listed as an AMV.  It's called "PaperHeart AMV."

Quite an interesting video.  It's not an "AMV" because it is all original artwork.  Very beautiful.

I'm not all that happy with YouTube's new home page.  It no longer gives me suggestions.  I don't have too many subscriptions ..  yet it keeps all the "recent" videos on top.  It has a few "because you watched X we give you Y" videos...  but they won't change.  They stay the same every time I log on.  The old YouTube made for some fun browsing.  The new set up is rather bad.

Who's sick this time?

Sick kid, sick me, sick wife.  Then the kid get's sick again.  And I don't feel so hot myself.  Again.

Gotta love illness.

A random foreign music video.

I figured I'd link another random music video.  I remember seeing this one a while back. It was one of those "WTF" videos.  The direction does not make sense and obviously I don't speak the language.

But it's fun to watch.

The video is "Ponponpon," sung by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.  I  had not thought about it in a while but YouTube brought up a similar video on their suggestions page.  When it would not properly play, I followed their link to this one.

YouTube.  It can be as random as Wikipedia.
