    I find I split myself--sticking to very rote stuff like filing when I don't feel creative and fooling with weird ideas like wanting a really big boarding house for Willimantic to implement Julia Ross's protocol of using better nutrition, both diet and supplements, to treat all sorts of addiction including alcohol street drugs and eating disorders and also get all the homeless, all the drunks, and all the drug addicts off the streets into the giant boarding house. Even a real estate agent acquaintance seemed to think it would be a great idea if someone would implement it. Getting the homeless, the drunks, and the drug addicts off the streets would improve property values which would be good for his business. More important, the business manager of the local state subsidized clinic for the poor seems to want something like that. Since the 1980s we have known that treatment for substance abuse is one of only three health care items that pay for themselves in future savings on health care costs. Since the late 1990s we have known that housing the homeless decently is cheaper within five years than either leaving them on the streets or putting them up in make shift shelters.
