and certainly the most uplifting aspect of what happened in Springfield during the days and weeks after the shootings in Thurston Highs cafeteria was how deeply Kip Kinkels rampage served to bond not just the community but the entire country. But that was a lie. He said it was because she'd badmouthed Candy, allegedly saying that Collier was too good for her. "I mean, my dad was getting his life back on track, settling down, hopefully for good.". If he were lying, then he would be the best actor that I have ever seen. Kids who had watched Kip shoot Mikael Nickolauson in the head sobbed and vomited as they described it to other students. Even though he has a learning disability, his overall IQ is high, and we know that high cognition is a good protective factor, a good prognostic factor. He looked normal, Tony said, but like he was feeling really bad about what he did. Its not just that we seem to be getting worse and worse, its that there doesnt seem to be any history of the Tomb of Tutankhamen end.

Like the Republicans, Clintons bill calls for treating more juvenile offenders as adults but also for spending more money on prevention programs. Can you comment on that behavior and relate it to the mental illness you diagnosed and the symptoms of that mental illness generally? Have you helped to recommend medications for Kip? Paranoia, the boys father said.
