Schizophrenia is a psychosis characterized by personality and thought disorganization, and it affects an estimated 1 percent of all people. Schizophrenics occupy more mental hospital beds than patients with any other single diagnosis.

U.S. Marines began pulling back Friday from this violence-wracked city in preparation for handing over responsibility for pursuing insurgents to a new militia headed [...]
I’ve got to work on some new titles
Two weeks and a bit aboard an Amphibious Helicopter Assault Ship. An LHA, for short.
Not a particularly attractive ship, I know. And coming from a carrier guy, that’s really saying something.
