YOU READ IT HERE AND IT'S COME TO ROOST

Recall this post of mine? In it I said there'd soon be an insanity defense in the works for the man who purportedly was suicidal and caused the catastrophic train derailment in Glendale, CA, earlier this week, resulting in 11 deaths and scores of injuries, many serious. Indeed, some of the injured remain hospitalized in critical condition, so the death count may grow.

Well, this from FOX News reports that's precisely what the defense attorney is up to. The psychologists will have a field day.

I wonder if any of the loved ones of victims in this tragedy are presently under suicide watch? Probably not. Out of sight, out of mind. The cameras and the storyline remain fixed on the bandaged perpetrator. That's how it works. I can hear it months from now: If his mind's unfit, you must acquit.
