Ah to be able to intellectualize racism. I wonder if it's as lovely as I dream it to be...

I'm with #1, Charles. Keep your head up.

I don't understand, didn't he set fire to the house this young girl AND her mother were in before flying off to kill people working at the IRS?

Heroism is usually an act of courage. This man seemed like he acted in anger, fear and maybe a little mental illness.

And one more thing....I think this young girl may be a little out of sorts. I know I would be if my dad pulled some crazy shite like that.

And one MORE thing...if he had a $250,000 airplane, wtf finicial issues was he complaining about? My HOUSE* doesn't even cost that much!

*But I live in Auburn, so.... yeah, lame.

A little less than two years ago, I worked as a therapist for Sound Mental Health. I had an average of 90 chronically mentally ill adults on my caseload. Many had been violent towards themselves and others. My job was to keep these 9o people on their meds, off of the drugs and out of the hospital and/or jail. I had to have a Masters degree to have the job. I was hired at 14.25 an hour.
One day, I was in line at the food counter at Costco. The person at the front of the line being served was having a conversation with the food worker behind the desk. The customer being served asked the food worker how much he made working for Costco. "15.50 an hour. Not bad for serving pizza!"
This is our Mental Health care system. It makes me weep.
We are trying to unionize to bring our caseloads down and increase pay, thus attracting and keeping competent therapists.
The community deserves better than this.
My deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Ms Butz.
