    is mentally disturbed.  Now that we have that out of the way, let us admit that someone may be mentally disturbed and yet not mentally ill or conversely someone may be mentally ill and not mentally disturbed.

    After all, the idea of "temporary insanity" is well embedded in law as a valid concept where a perfectly sane or normal person may "snap" and commit mayhem and after the fact, return to normalcy.  OTOH illness suggests a persistent or chronic state, not one which a person enters and a matter of minutes later, recovers from completely.

    So I will continue to harp on demonizing the mentally ill so long as I see suggestions such as the mentally ill should not be allowed to drive, should not be allowed to vote, should be institutionalized or even sterilized against their will.

    So qwitchyerwhining about whining; I don't whine. I harp and I carp but I do not whine
