I might recommend clarifying the line "Most crimes are committed by the sane." In terms of violent crime, I'd tend to see any capacity for criminal violence as signs of some kind of underlying psychiatric disorder, even if the person in question seemed otherwise functional and "normal." I think I understand what you meant -- sane as opposed to suffering a schizophrenic disorder speciically -- but it was a little bit jarring.

Nonetheless: fantastic, compassionate, and absolutely vital work as always. I have several dear friends here on Livejournal who have schizophrenia, and I admit, it took me some time to realize emotionally what I already knew intellectually, that the stigma against these eminently worthwhile folks was cruel and unfounded. I feel you're even doing me something of a personal favor by writing these things, because you might in some way be making my friends' lives a little easier. Thank you so much.
