“The question mark kid”

April 17, 2007 § Leave a comment

Jesus.  This kid was seriously mentally ill.

So far, the list includes:  Three stalking incidents.  An arson attempt.  Several police interventions.  Psychiatric medication.  At least one emergency psychiatric evaluation.  Repeated requests for assistance by professors, department chairs, and dorm roommates.  A distinct second identity.  Suicide threats.

Meanwhile, an immigrant family worked long hours at a dry cleaners to send their two kids to college.

(Sighs.)

Didn’t I just write about this?
