Washburn's World

My take on the world. My wife often refers to this as the WWW (Weird World of Washburn)

The Red Lake, Minnesota School Shootings

My quick reaction when I heard the story on the news this morning, was which SSRI was THIS shooter on?

Every school shooter since the mid 1980's who was a 21 or younger was also on an Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibator. SSRI's are the anti-depressants known by the various brand names: Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Effexor,Serzone, etc. Regardless of the brand name these are best thought of as SSRI or Prozac, Prozac 2 (Zoloft), Prozac 3 (Luvox), etc.

Here is my prediction: today or tomorrow a small notice at the end of 12 column-inches of story about how bad guns are and how Jeff Weisse loved Hitler will be the throwaway line: "he had been prescribed anti-depressants". If we are lucky the throwaway line will be: "he had been prescribed the anti-depressant [fill in the SSRI or combination of SSRI's]"
