Although we are too apt to call mass-murderers crazy rather than evil, this crime does seem like a lunatic’s work. A propos, it’s hard not to wonder about the long-term effects of a project the cultural revolution put over in the 1960s and ’70s: de-institutionalizing the insane so long as they were (supposedly) not dangerous, and building legal and bureaucratic obstacles to keep mentally ill persons from being committed to hospitals or asylums, for society’s and their own good.Yep, Reagan played no role at all.
