  •  thank you for a good diary as usual (10+ / 0-)

    Circumstances prevented me from reading the whole article in Rolling Stone. The magazine disappeared under a mountain of papers, and when it resurfaced I wasn't thinking about it any more. I'd read to the "wounds" and "normals" part.

    It is hard to imagine getting pulled into the phase which he describes as "a sort of mechanical <>ian skin starts to grow all over your real self" - I can't bring myself to write the "Christian". My real self IS Christian, and nothing at all like that. What went through my mind was, "Blessed are they that walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the street of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful..." and I interpret that Psalm (Psalm 1) as a warning not to get entrapped with the used-car-salesman routine.

    Is it even possible to define this practice in such terms that it could be made illegal? I am starting to understand the process behind the personality switch, at last. I will have to read the rest of that article!
