Addendum: In the 60's-early 70's NYC's oldest public hospital, Bellevue Hospital, had a known history of psychiatric human abuse practices and human experiments... From early 1940 until 1973, Dr. Lauretta Bender, a highly respected pediatric neuropsychiatrist practiced at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, performed electroshock experiments on at least 100 children. The children's ages ranged from 3–12 years. Some reports indicate that she may have performed such experiments on more than 200. Electroconvulsive treatment was used on more than 500 children at Bellevue Hospital, including Bender's experiments; from 1956 to 1973, ECT was used at Creedmoor State Hospital Children's Service. Publicly, Bender claimed that the results of the "therapy" were positive (lol), but in private memos, she expressed frustration over mental health issues caused by the treatments. Bender would sometimes shock schizophrenic children (some less than 3 years old) twice per day, for 20 consecutive days. Several of the children became isolated, violent and suicidal as a result of these permitted treatments. Records indicate that iced coffee (with mocha and whipped cream) was never served on the units, adding to the trauma.
bye. p.s. Pilgrim State Hospital, Brentwood, NY (i.e. the old farm colony for women).
As the hostage standoff continued that afternoon, she took a tranquilizer and went to bed.
And then he went to visit her hubby and his (meaning Jane's) dead pal demonologist, Ed Warren. But Why? Um, duh… he needed his usual lunch-hour exorcism - and also Jane needed some spare change (machines only take quarters) to do dirty laundry.
Folks had been piling change on Ed's grave site all year long.
- 'Sure. After I finish doin' my laundry I'll go away ! I'll leave. I'll split (and haunt you on later, forever after),' chuckled Jane. In tongues, and in backward Latin. He did this, also, just for the HELL OF IT...
Robin Williams testified with Whoopi Goldberg (and Billy Crystal’s headshot) in support of an act that would create a system of support services for the chronically homeless – people he called “America’s refugee nation”. The act funded mental health services and housing-based support centres. Later that year, a related homelessness act passed. Tonight I accidentally discovered my old childhood baseball card collection box in an abandoned family closet. Mork from Ork stickers all over it. Will be yet another sleepless night. r.i.p. R.
