After 3 Suspected Suicides, Cornell Reaches Out - Readers' Comments -

From the Department of Heartless Uncaring Bastards. I especially like comment #72, as its author claims to be a psychiatrist, while demonstrating almost as much compassion as his 'colleague' who went on a killing spree on an army base. I especially like his joke about how you have to 'want to change, like a light bulb'; that must be hilarious to the parents of dead kids. And he concludes with, 'we're here for you...' evidently completely ignorant of several posters WHO COULD NOT GET COUNSELING AT CORNELL OR ANYWHERE ELSE, largely due to insurance/financial issues. Well, I think we can all see what a credential means today. NOTHING.
Dead Rodent TypingAfter 3 Suspected Suicides, Cornell Reaches Out - Readers' Comments - "There's an old joke in psychiatry: How many shrinks does it take to change a light bulb? Answer: None--the light bulb has to want to change. Brutal? In poor taste? Not really. The reality is that the offer of help is only as effective as your willingness and ability to take or consider that you might need help to begin with. We're here, but you need to take our hand and hang on--and trust that we won't let go."
