i don't make this stuff up, i just report it

you haven't lived until you've seen a dayroom full of dementia patients sitting around watching dr. strangelove. usually the movies they play in such places are more the fuzzy-bunny or jimmy stewart variety. in a weird way, the place my mom is staying for rehab after her hospital stay seems, dare i say, _hipper_ than the unit where she came from (and whence she'll return when she stops progressing in rehab).

also, who knew that there was an opera about ppl in my parents' condition? i've been listening to the classical station in my brother-in-law's car and today i heard an opera, in english, where one of the characters was singing, "i'm crazy!" and the chorus was singing about nursing homes and medicare. tried googling, to no avail. i'm really curious about this.
