monkeytown is saved!

(no subject)

This week, Rob tells the Gemini:

Studies show that people in Utah take antidepressant drugs at a rate twice the national average. Why? It may have to do with Mormon culture, which is a dominant influence in the state. The argument goes that church members feel they have to be perfect and act happy no matter what's bothering them. If this is an accurate assessment, the antidepressant glut in Utah may soon abate. That's because Geminis living there (and all over the world, for that matter) will just naturally be finding new ways to feel good by acknowledging and dealing with the imperfections in their lives. Remember how Salvador Dali said he didn't need to take drugs because he was a drug? Well, I believe you will, in effect, be a natural antidepressant. You'll have a talent for seeing interesting beauty in every situation, even difficult ones.

Hm. That sounds like me a lot of the time anyway. Yay for being easily entertained! :-)
