    doesn't have to mean "warehousing" -- I've seen the results of mental illness in my own family, as well as what can happen when it's properly treated and the person housed in appropriate facilities. My brother-in-law has transitioned into "supportive care" housing, where he shares a house with 3 other adults with monthly house meetings and counseling sessions with his own guardian twice a month. (The county wants him to consider moving out to his own place, but both he and his family -- his mom, Mr. Scribe and myself -- think that would be a bad idea because the last thing he needs is isolation.)

    There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
