Bush to screen population for mental illness

Egads! Now, to be fair that headline is a little bit simplified and dramatic, but it comes from a rather right-leaning web site so that probably wouldn't surprise many. You can actually read the progress report on the "New Freedom Initiative for People with Disabilities" yourself, but it is almost as dull as you would expect for a government document so here is a link to the Executive Summary which will give you an idea of what the entire focus of this thing is. The screening for mental illness is actually a very tiny piece of the whole thing. I personally enjoy the broad intention to get more of the disabled into the work force. Not that that isn't a noble cause if they want to work and all, I just get a dark Orwellian comic urge when I think about it, but that's me.
