Dear Madness:

I'm into the first rewrite of the Cuckoo's Nest screenplay. But I haven't been in a nuthouse for more than ten years. Your paper came at a perfect time to remind me of something unremembarable. Thanks.

Also, we are bringing out a magazine in the Fall called Spit in the Ocean. The theme of the first issue is Old in the Streets. Have you got a piece telling what it's like to be an old looney and observations therein?

Long live Thomas S. Szasz!
