> One link was to a state of California study that indicated most ECT therapy is given to people age 65 and older. Another mentioned a Texas newspaper's study that revealed ECT is most often paid for by medicaid.

The elderly often find it difficult to tolerate the side effects of antidepressant drugs, especially because they're more likely than younger people to be taking lots of other drugs as well.

> The e-mail started off with suggestions about the role of anti-depressants in school shootings.

Hmm -- like, for example, Eric Harris, who stopped taking his Luvox shortly before gunning down a bunch of his classmates?

These days, troubled people are liable to be taking antidepressants. Do the antidepressants always work? No, obviously not. But do the antidepressants make them more troubled? I doubt it.

> In the middle of the e-mail was information about John D. Rockefeller, founder of the University of Chicago. The link talks about J. Rockefeller's Standard Oil monopoly and the vast amount of wealth he accumulated for his estate and the organizations he endowed, which include the University of Chicago. There was also some information in there about the University's role in the production of the first atomic bomb.

Loose associations????

The more I read, the more I wonder whether this fellow you heard from is (or was) suffering from acute mania. If he (or she) is reading, I urge him (or her) to look into or at least consider the possibility.
