Paul, thanks for the kind words!

> Perhaps people are less receptive to the idea that depression "causes" suicide (after all, who could one sue?) than they are to the idea that Eli Lilly or some other company (trying to market drugs that, among other things, keep people from killing themselves) is making people do it.

I totally agree! People need a scapegoat; psychiatric drugs are new and scary to the Luddites in our midst. ;-)

> By the way, Elizabeth, good follow-up to my (half-baked) comment on "self-medication" above- I agree.

I didn't think it was half-baked. I really did think it was a good point. (I like to play devil's advocate too sometimes.)
