Photo Post I wish that I could write more on this subject, but I can’t, because to do so would betray my family. 
But I know what it’s like to grow up in a household like the one described by Liza Long in her incredibly moving piece, “I am Adam Lanza’s Mother.” And I know, from experience, that with diligent observance, care, and dedication, kids like Adam Lanza and Liza’s son can grow into their personalities, and go on to live relatively normal, peaceful lives. 
The problem is that it costs an incredibly prohibitive amount of money. Hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
I’m all for better treatment of disturbed children, and the mentally ill. They are not evil. But I think Gail Collins said it best in her editorial this weekend:
“Every country has a sizable contingent of mentally ill citizens. We’re the one that gives them the technological power to play god.”
Gun control. Gun control. Gun control. Gun control. That’s the immediate solution.
