Letters

Well, you puerile, pathologizing pseudo-pundits, I suppose you are "correct." I have been off (not "my") Smith, Kline, and French's meds for 25 years, ever since reading in the New England Journal of Medicine that lithium causes renal damage. The pushers of Prozac notwithstanding, these "medicines," even the "new" ones, are highly toxic. Mass drugging is at the center of a paradigm that posits that people's distress is biologically hard-wired and engendered, despite its obvious omnipresence, and can only be ameliorated by poisonous chemicals.

My distress might be ameliorated by an apology, and a written policy that allows the letter writer to nix irrelevant and insulting headlines. My love of the First Amendment is even greater than my loathing of New Times Inc. and its snide corporatist monopoly alternative-ism. So I will probably not talk to my lawyer buddies about redress. Probably.
