Re: “Nashville Delegation Drops Ball On In-State Tuition For Undocumented Immigrants

"A new report from the Congressional Research Service links the increase in immigration in recent decades to the decline of the median income for the bottom 90% of income tax filers. The report, prepared for the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, shows that as the percentage of foreign-born residents declined between 1945 and the early-1970s, the median income for middle-class Americans increased. But after the foreign-born percentage began to increase after 1970, middle-class wages stagnated before plummeting after 2000...." -- NumbersUSA and other sources

Re: “Nashville Delegation Drops Ball On In-State Tuition For Undocumented Immigrants

Chris, you have more spin than a Maytag. We haven't had a free market in my lifetime. And some of the first calls I received on this issue were from construction contractors losing business (eventually losing it all) because they were being underbid by people using illegal labor and paying far less than what the law-abiding were paying. There has been nothing fair and equitable about this shafting of Americans in every aspect of our lives.

Re: “Music lovers' feast The Wrecking Crew celebrates the West Coast counterparts to the Nashville Cats

Cool film, glad to see it finally get a real release.

But Dick Clark saying that he didn't even know that bands didn't all play on their own records until the Monkees came along is pure horseshit.

The comedy portion of the film I guess.

Re: “A Reunited Sleater-Kinney Rocks Out at Marathon Music Works

haters...

Sleater-Kinney ROCKED and sounded fantastic. Myself, my wife and everyone we knew there thought it was incredible and this is a solid, if a bit glowing, description of the vibe of the evening.

This true fan of ROCK was elevated by the band rather than destroyed. Different strokes, you know.

@Dana they have most of the brand names you want and their produce isn't terrible. Also, everyone who works there is so nice. I like my bananas almost green so I only buy 1 at a time so in there every day at least for that.

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

"Why? His nurse practitioner apparently told him to. If patients are required to have the same knowledge as health care professionals, why have health care professionals?"

Not the same knowledge at all. Wikipedia would have sufficed. Medications have thousands of side effects and interactions, a mere fraction of that number is printed out of a pharmacy flyer that everyone throws away. You need to know if you can drink grapefruit juice, or take it with the heart medication you didn't bother to tell your doctor about because one doesn't have to do with the other. You need to know that if a tremor starts it's not a sign of illness, but a side effect. You clearly need to know not to just stop taking a medication either because someone told you to or you just decide it's not working. And what if you have a problem over the weekend? Don't you want to be able to make an informed choice to either wait it out or go to the ER? We HAVE to be informed. Mistakes are made, clearly.. You google your meds so this doesn't happen. You take responsibility for yourself.

"Again, why? I wouldn't even know what tapering is to ask if my doctor didn't first bring it up and explain it."

You would have if you had googled it.

"You mean someone like his nurse and doctor?"

No. Someone who lived with him, who went with him to all his appointments. Someone who could say "No dear, she told you to taper them, I heard her." or "Did she tell you to taper them? I should call her and make sure". Someone who actually makes sure you take the pills you are prescribed, as they are prescribed. Someone who knows the common side effects and where to get more information if you need it. Mental illness is hard. This is not remembering to take a vitamin where the only thing preventing it from happening is that you spaced out. And there are many who cannot manage this on their own. If they can't, they need help.

"I also like how you start by saying "This is no one's fault." And then spend a run-on paragraph parceling out fault. Mainly to the wrong people by my reading."

It is no one's fault. Mistakes were made. Daniel did this. Fault or not. He lives with it. His family lives with it. And a nurse practitioner possibly giving unclear instructions isn't going to make it okay. And even if she screwed up badly, even if she did it with malice, it was still preventable. Because your doctor tells you to become knowledgeable about your medication. Your pharmacist actually gives you that information as required by law. All that's left is that someone has to read it, and make sure they understand it.

I screwed up badly once. Not this bad thank god, but bad enough. And 1000 things could have prevented it that I had no control over.What I did have control over was what I did. And I could blame my doctors or my parents or my teachers. I could have stopped it. I made the decision that hurt people and ruined my life for awhile. I chose not to be honest about an over the counter sleep aid I was secretly taking, because I thought if I told them I wasn't sleeping well they would hospitalize me. One stupid lie. And I knew the risk, I just thought it was remote. But I had a terrible interaction and I lost most of the people I cared about. When I was hospitalized and was taught what I needed to do. There's a lot we cannot control in the world. Especially the mentally ill. We can't control if the doc screws up. We can't control how we react to medication. We can't control what comes or when it comes. We can be prepared. We have to be. We have to educate those around us, however painful that might be to do. We have to take charge of our own care. I can make sure nothing I do hurts me or someone else. That's my job. And even if no one else does their job, If I'm doing mine it will still be okay. And people don't automatically know this stuff. But you are the one who suffers if you don't educate yourself, regardless of blame or fault or culpability. If you fall asleep at the wheel and become paralyzed, you can blame the doctor for not telling you the medication would make you sleepy. You're still the one in the chair.

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

@Patient37

"Daniel should have known he couldn't just stop Geodon."

Why? His nurse practitioner apparently told him to. If patients are required to have the same knowledge as health care professionals, why have health care professionals?

"If she did not say to taper off Geodon, he should have asked. "

Again, why? I wouldn't even know what tapering is to ask if my doctor didn't first bring it up and explain it.

"And if he was so affected by his illness that he could not do those things, someone should have been doing it for him and managing his medication."

You mean someone like his nurse and doctor?

I also like how you start by saying "This is no one's fault." And then spend a run-on paragraph parceling out fault. Mainly to the wrong people by my reading.

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

This is no one's fault. Mistakes were made by all involved. Innocent, perfectly understandable mistakes, but fatal ones. Daniel's family had too much reliance on a care system that was essentially a 9-5 office. Those of us with mental health issues have to be ok going to the ER. It's slow and it's embarrassing, but after doctors go home at the end of the day, you can't white knuckle it through to 9 am the next day when things are bad. Daniel should have known he couldn't just stop Geodon. You have to research your medication. You have to know what you are taking, how it works, and when it's dangerous. If she did not say to taper off Geodon, he should have asked. And if he was so affected by his illness that he could not do those things, someone should have been doing it for him and managing his medication. Dahl should have seen he was agitated and written down instructions for him to give to his wife. Or if she had the appropriate permissions, told his wife herself. And Oliver probably believed that the son who loved him would never really hurt him. That he could be reached, or that he was in there somewhere listening. It's a romantic notion but that's not how the disease works. Oliver should have locked himself in a different room as soon as Daniel picked up the knife. And there are a million reasons why none of these things happened. Some even good reasons. This was still new to Daniel. He didn't know what his responsibilities were. And his family likely thought of the ER as a place where they would throw him in a straight jacket and haul him off. And not so long ago that would have been true. A lot of things went wrong. But it's no one's fault. When people do the best they can with what they know, it's a tragedy.

@Jeff-Benson1989- It doesn't sound like "Daniel" is going anywhere anytime soon (although I don't get the quotes, maybe "Daniel" was a pseudonym?)

Were the nurse and doctor fired as a result? It's been over a year since this happened. Would've liked to know what happened to them.

Re: “Did a shift in medication help cause Daniel Cantrell to kill his father?

This is infuriating and disturbing. I feel horrible for the mother who lost her husband and really her son too. I feel like the medical professionals are responsible here to because of their changing his medication amount and type. This is exactly how NOT to treat a severely mentally ill patient.
