I'm now a 52-year-old American male raised as an Episcopalian, veteran of submarines, Peace Corps, and State Department. I like teaching people about what they can do with computers and have gotten by as an independent Microsoft trainer teaching networking, but I really hope to someday find a way to make a living traveling on my motorcycle, camping, and writing about places and people I meet along the way.

Another Evaluation for Susan?

Well! What is this?

Susan's says that her lawyer is surprised and confused. The Justice Department wants another evaluation, the judge has agreed, and even the prosecutor, Susan thinks, was surprise.

What does this mean?

Another visit to Carswell?

It is amazing, to me, that with so many people in need of medical care and who are not provided for their needs by our government, that somebody who does not want it is forced....

Ah! Here is what we don't think about. What if all medical care were in the control of the government? Would that not be another way for tyrants to govern? Anybody who does not get along with authority can be labeled as psychotic or delusional and institutionalized.

I will begin donating to the ACLU, today. I think that Thomas Jefferson, and maybe a few other of our founding fathers would.

Prosecutors are trying force treatment precisely because they want to have their chance to prosecute her. This happens a lot when a defendant's competency is called into question-- and it's the downside of avoiding trial by declaring incompetency. Prosecutors do not want defendant's to avoid trial.

This is such overkill though in Susan's case, I think. When are they going to just resolve it, make up their minds, and be done already?

What I have a problem with is the way the system has effectively kept Susan in limbo for... how long has it been?

Careful about donating to the ACLU-- they will sell your name to every mailing list that exists. Great cause, but you might want to demand that they keep your information private. I speak from experience.
