I have to get programming homework done before tomorrow. I filed my taxes today and I have a significant refund headed back my way. I spent way too much money on food this month -- dinning out. I got NCCJ all souped up with computer stuff. I feel I need to write but all I can get out is meaningless, frivolous details.

I just fired an email off about some political problems at Passages:

I'm scratching my head trying to decide what to do about this. This has 
politics written all over it.

David Donovan attended the the Synergy House inservice on Thursday 
morning. While we were presenting, David used one of his patients as an 
example. He said "I'll change the name of the patient to protect him and 
call him 'Doug'". Except, as more and more of David's patient's story 
unfolded, it became quite clear that he had not changed his patient's 
name. The person he was decribing is one of Passage's youth and in so 
doing, David released some /very/ private and personal problems to me 
and the audience -- a violation of patient confidentiality.

I do not know Doug intimately; I've only seen him at Passages 
frequently. The details David used to describe Doug over the course of 
the presentation were unmistakeably his. I'm faced with this delima: I 
know that David was once Passage's President. I also know that David has 
been involved in past political problems with in the board and embroided 
in scandles that never became fully public. What happened on Thursday is 
shocking and appaling.

My first reaction is that this needs to be reported to the proper 
authorities or -- at the very least -- Doug and his parents. Any 
thoughts? I'm at a loss.

-- Jason Clinton I don't believe in witty sigs.

I'm thinking of going out to dance tonight. I haven't done that in a long time and I think it would be nice.

Blah blah blah.... blah blah blah. Okay. I don't have anything else to write about I guess. Good night.

stupid fucking therapists
Dude -
who did you send that email to? Kyle needs to know about this, at least. Then we can look at perhaps an official complaint to file somewhere.

I know you changed "Doug"'s name for the purpose of the email, but I think I may know who you are talking about. David has done that before with a Passages youth. I heard about it third-hand, so I wasn't sure whether to believe it. It sounds more plausible now.

He's such a useless fucker. If I had him for a therapist I'd deck him and walk out of his office on the first session, probably.

Re: stupid fucking therapists
I sent it to Kyle and Helen.

I really don't like David Donovan, anyways. Shit floats to the top sometimes, I guess. :)
