I said it first but it's nice to see it in the Washington Post.

There are baby bunnies in our yard! I almost ran then over with the lawnmower. They're the size of the palm of my hand. They're in a little scrape by the base of one of our pine trees. I hope the mom comes and moves them soon 'cause that is not a safe place.

Being a psych major, crazy people are of interest to me.
I remember learning that the definition of psychosis was a loss of contact with reality, as when hallucinations or delusions are present. The most classic type of psychosis is schizophrenia. Nearly everyone is familiar with the stereotpe of a paranoid schizophrenic beset with delusions of persecution.
Is it possible for an entire culture to suffer from such a syndrome? I believe it is.
Exhibit 1. (more evidence to follow later.)
From one of my abnormal psych textbooks:
"We hold that behavior is abnormal, a manifestation of mental disorder, if it is both persistent and in serious degree contrary to the continued well-being of the individual and/ or that of the human community of which the individual is a member."

How can they look into the mirror in the morning?
Would they rather have a child molester or a woman as a
priest? Now we know.
