Okay xanga friends. I need some advice.
You know Halloween is coming up and I really like scary stuff. A friend of mine has invited me to go to Pennhurst Asylum. Where they have a huge haunted house, fully loaded with lobotomies performed with chainsaws. In case you haven't heard of it, it was a place for mentally incapacitated children that the state of Pennsylvania ran, that ended up in some sick circumstances. (see video, watch the first 2:50. The rest is just current pictures)
"After comparing the zoo to pennhurst, one must get the impression that societies animals are more important then societies children".
Now since I know about the history of Pennhurst, because of my knowledge of psychiatric issues, I am incredibly hesitant to go, because I think they are really trying to make a huge buck off of some serious suffering, since the state does still own the property and I can't seem to fathom why they are making a mockery of a HUGE fuck up on their part. Should I just shut up and go, and stop being such a whiney, political correct sissy pants, because I never go out with friends ever? Or should I stand my ground?
