Making Things Worse

I have to worry about the future of satirical organizations like The Onion when I read stories like this.  Yes, not even two weeks have elapsed since the shooting rampage by a mentally disturbed person in Tuscon, and the Governor of that very state is planning on cutting back on health services for the mentally ill.  Absolutely unbelievable.  I often get accused of going a bit over the top with my criticism of right-wing morons, but heck, the worst case scenario I envisioned after the Tuscon tragedy was that nothing would be done about these mental health care issues and we would just continue the status quo.  But no, Arizona is going to make the situation even worse!  What pathetic times we live in.
