I remember when the mental hospitals were shut down allegedly on the basis of civil liberties violations. When the media began attacks on mental institutions I was in college, in Virginia no less, and had the opportunity to tour one of Virigia's largest in Staunton (some 5000 patients). I was impressed with how clean the place was and how well cared for the patients appeared. Not the description you got in the media.

Does anyone else have memories similar to this reader's?
