I'm just curious: How do men figure out who exits the elevator before the other(s)?It's rare that there are 2 women exiting at the same floor in my building, so I just take the prerogative and go…Continue
While my fiance and I in theory want a "traditional" wedding reception with dancing, we kind of have a mental block on what music we should play. We're also not sure we want to hire a DJ when music…Continue
Does it, or would it, offend you to be invited/attend a marriage ceremony that was not recognized by the civil government because a civil marriage ceremony had taken place earlier, or was scheduled…Continue
D L quotes St. Thomas wildly out of context. It's a quote from an objection in the Summa Theologica. The Summa proceeds by posing a question which St. Thomas will answer.

I had something long on why mental health screenings for gun purchasers will never work, but I see TGD doesn't understand mental healthcare to begin with.
Though mental illnesses are more treatable than the most feared bodily illnesses, and kill just as many people, and certainly have more sufferers, they are handled differently and less by our "healthcare system."
What really gets my goat are the financial disincentives for seeking treatment. I have heard (pre-Obamacare)…Continue
