^ Watched it.

Mark Kelly is really one of the good guys. And I've always thought Gabby was really a beautiful woman, even now. It's amazing to see the progress she's made.

I was watching it last night and thinking. If there ever is a case for 'mental health funding prevention' this is it.

Sorry to make a political statement but really.

"Mental health"?

He means that Loughner is fairly obviously a paranoid schizophrenic. Textbook case. The problem is it wasn't until he did something really crazy that he got diagnosed.

OK, I see now. I was misreading both whom he was referring to and what it was he wanted to "prevent."

Well, you won't get any arguments against funding mental health services from me, though I'm not sure that was the problem here. Loughner had been suspended from his college a year before, for example, and college officials had met with him and his parents and told them they'd only readmit him if he provided written certification from a psychiatrist/psychologist that he wasn't dangerous to himself or others. (Instead, he withdrew and no treatment was pursued.) It's not at all legally easy to commit someone of majority age to treatment.

Great piece last night.

Gabrielle Giffords Fights for her Life | Video - ABC News

There's a link to it, if anyone wants to watch. I highly recommend it. I got choked up just about every time they showed her singing. So glad that she's up and moving, and talking, and I hope she just keeps getting better and better. Beautiful woman.

I'm not done tearing up from Mark's intro to Beautiful Day. It'll be a while before I can watch that.

I can't believe U2 got to incorporate "tell me wife I love her very much, she knows" with a real astronaut into the 360 show.

Whoever thought up that idea is a genius and should be paid very handsomely.
