    that it's too complicated to understand, I agree with you.  There is something wrong with people like Lanza who get up one day and commit mass murder and suicide.  I have a hard time believing they are totally mentally healthy.  They have issues, clearly.  Exactly WHAT Adam Lanza's issue was, I don't know.  But he was not mentally healthy, period.

    And I say this as someone who does struggle with mental illness, so I get it when people talk about lack of access to treatment, that it's not taken seriously, and it's used to belittle people and discriminate.
