PSYCHO LIKE A FOX

Postby blunt » Sat Dec 29, 2007 2:29 pm

What's happening inside these people's heads? Why do the heads of mental institutes go all mental when we call someone like Ed Gein a psycho?
Sorry, but calling him a bipolar with an Oedipal complex doesn't quite do it.
I recall another letter from someone upset at a Dairy Queen ad that "degraded the metally ill" by potraying a guy who was trying to decide what to order as having 3 different versions of himself in thought cloud balloons above his head.
Please.
Like we all don't have many more different personalities.
I just don't see the insult.
And I'll bet the truly crazy won't either.

Remember where you live. Lately it seems you can offend someone by breathing in this city.

If a filthy mouth breather exhales a mighty gust in my direction and has not been up on his dental hygiene, be assured offense will be taken.

Your blatant hatred of those who live with bad breath makes me sick. A lot of people suffer from halatosis and gingivitis, real medical conditions which one of the symptoms is bad breath. I suppose you want to round them up and lock em up, huh?

Another letter writer takes offense at ads with "full nude" and "alcohol".

Damnit, now I can't take my beer with me into the shower before I go to work in the morning.

I gotta say, by the standards of many alt-weeklies, Isthmus is pretty tame in the racy-ads department. Not that I am opposed to racy ads.

I love the nasty ads and naked people and drugs and smoking and crazy people.
I am offended by those that are offended.

Not for paying customers, anyway.
