+Matthew Baggott correct, CFS has a heterogeneous and ill-defined etiology which may overlap with known affective disorders. Efforts to define a molecular mechanism have failed because there are no biomarkers. HPPD fits this bill. That doesn't mean these aren't real indications, but I don't have high hopes for a clear unifying mechanism for them.

NYTimes covering the experience of a Burning Man style Temple for those who lost loved ones in the Troubles in Ireland

Burning a 75-foot-tall pagan temple in a Republican Catholic enclave on the loyalist Protestant side of Londonderry seemed to many like a bad idea.
