Robin Williams: A Great Loss of a Great Talent

The press representative for Robin Williams indicated he died Aug 11th and "has been battling severe depression of late."
Robin Williams was a very talented actor, and comedian. He played to Sold Out shows, was awarded, honored cheered and brought a smile and laughter to millions throughout his long career.

He was suffering from severe depression, which unfortunately means he has used or was using antidepressant drugs. A side of effect of antidepressants, and psychotropic drugs is suicide. Unfortunately, the subscribing doctor, or psychiatrist and pharmaceutical firm will go on with subscribing with impunity.

The world has lost a great talent, and the world will continue to lose talented people young and old due to pharmaceutical drugs, yet nothing will be done about it.

So long Robin Williams, you will be missed.

Democratic Senator John Walsh cites PTSD in Apparent Thesis Plagiarism

A Montana senator who is running for re-election suggested Wednesday that medication he took for post-traumatic stress disorder after service in Iraq may have been responsible for apparently plagiarized passages in his thesis.
Montana Sen. John Walsh's thesis, which was written to earn a master's degree from the U.S. Army War College, contains unattributed passages taken word-for-word from previously published papers.
The Democrat also said he was dealing with the stress of a fellow veteran's recent suicide.
Walsh said he made an unintentional mistake and did not intend to plagiarize.
"I don't want to blame my mistake on PTSD, but I do want to say it may have been a factor," Walsh told The Associated Press. "My head was not in a place very conducive to a classroom and an academic environment."
A spokesperson for Walsh's campaign said the apparent plagiarism was "unintentional."
