Pessimistic Disorder

For some reason, a kid whose symptoms seem to indicate very mild autism exacerbated by horrible parenting is Newsweek's "Growing Up Bipolar" cover story. This kind of lazy, sensationalistic mainstream science journalism isn't a new problem, but we're veering into alarming Dr. Phil territory here. It's like the print equivalent of reality television.

On the other hand, my childhood dreams of running a travelling medicine show are starting to look sort of reasonable after all.
