THE INTERNET, Sept. 16 - My new, 5,000+ word essay on mental illness in the Holy Land is now online at Vice. I've shot my mouth off for years about the complex psychotic rupture known as Jerusalem Syndrome, and I was embarrassed, last year, to read that I'd referenced the phenomenon in at least three unrelated articles. So it was nice of Vice to send me there to cover the real deal. Thanks, guys.
Also, I logged another weekly column on Tuesday. This one's about the Weird Period of late 2002. It's not bad (for me).
