  •  if I was wealthy.... (0+ / 0-)

    .... one thing I would really want to do is start some kind of collective home for troubled kids, properly staffed with at minimum a nurse and a psychologist on duty around the clock, and a doctor and a psychiatrist on call.

    I've worked with some troubled 20-somethings in the past, in a project to help them get work (it was completely informal and it ultimately succeeded with the group we were working with, so having completed the task, we wrapped it up and that was that).  But it was clear that more is needed, and the kids we were working with were relatively "mild" cases in that they at least had roofs over their heads and no major substance problems or legal trouble.  A more ambitious version of that project didn't get off the ground because we ran into the issue of "case management" for people with chronic problems: and that takes $$$ that we did not have.  

    The degree to which our society treats children and young adults as disposable commodities, makes me want to vomit.

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
