THOUGH NOT DIRECTLY RELATED, this article on campus violence by the Insta-Wife and a couple of colleagues is still pretty relevant, given the Aurora shooter’s roots in an academic environment.

Let me also give another plug to Clayton Cramer’s My Brother Ron: A Personal and Social History of the Deinstitutionalization of the Mentally Ill. (Also on Kindle.) Several papers have written me to ask for columns and I’ve just referred them to Clayton. I don’t really have anything to say that I haven’t said before.

Here’s my piece from 2007 in the New York Daily News. Maybe you should click through just to see if we can bump it up to their “Most Popular” link today . . . .

UPDATE: Well, we’re up to #9 already!

ANOTHER UPDATE: Make that #7!


STILL MORE: #5! I wonder if it’ll pass their odious “Blood On Their Hands” editorial, now at #3? At least the point’s made, anyway . . . .

MORE STILL: Now up to #4, but the odious editorial has moved up to #2, probably from InstaPundit readers clicking through to see how odious it was. . . . Oh, well.
