Attended a fine performance of "Man of la Mancha" last night - I continue to be impressed with the productions and talents that are displayed by touring companies. The musical presents a play within a play of Cervantes performing as Don Quixote in a dungeon during the Spanish Inquisition. I saw the movie years ago, and had forgotten the many excellent quotes within the script. The play continues to be performed around the world. Here is an introduction by the late actor, Peter O'Toole:
I can imagine few scenarios when a visit to a hospital emergency room for medical attention to treat a cat bite is actually necessary. What is apparently needed are mental health ER's.
And required annual logic tests for researchers.
Or simply retitled the report "Depressed women find comfort by unnecessarily utilizing emergency medical services" - but that is not really news and does not attract attention. May be it will be statistically proven that researchers and/or media purveyors are depressed, throwing up these stories for attention.
Our species is likely highly differentiated with the inclination to worry - and controlling, much less eliminating worry is difficult and varies with one's personality. Most of these essays are insightful - although it may be said they merely provide other things to worry about. ;-)
