Re: “In Bruges

Gotta disagree with Erik's review here. I LOVED this movie. Colin Farrell, indeed, was fantastic. I wanted to hate him, but he was incredible. Very believable. And I thought the last 40 minutes was some of the most original cinema I've seen in years. I'd hate to give it away, but it was bristling with unpredictable mischief. And Ralph Fiennes with a cockney accent? Marvelous.

I watched four seconds in the middle. That was all I could take.

Re: “Read The Goddamn News

@tk @Reymont alright, alright. I resume my role as edutainer...you're right that we don't know what venues his parents took.

But I can assure you that Jack Collins, for example, walked in to Central Precinct days before he was shot, BEGGING for mental treatment. The officers sent him on his way, with a map to the Cascadia offices.

There's just no connectivity in the system, and nobody's being paid to have compassion. If you're mentally ill, you're lucky if you're in jail in this state. At least you made it in, off the street. But of course, when you're there, your benefits all get cut off, so good luck getting back on your feet when they ditch you on the steps at the conclusion of your sentence.

Re: “Matt Davis is Leaving the Building...

Wow, Steve. I'm not sure it'll be quite the same without that sweater or the revolving stage...but I can't wait to hear it. Maybe you could whisper the whole thing into my ear? That would be nice.

Re: “Read The Goddamn News

@Reymont: Are you being deliberately stupid this afternoon?

If you read the statement by Otis' parents, he was diagnosed with this problem, and they say it was almost impossible to get him any help. There were "very few options." Their words.

But this isn't just about Campbell. It goes back to James Chasse in 2006. It goes back further than that, since the last crisis center was closed in 2001.

To describe mental health treatment and prevention as a "pet project" in any instance is an insult to Major League soccer, sewer revenue being used to kickstart bike plans, and of course, Jumptown, USA. Pet projects. Puh-lease.
