    Thank you for your succinct piece, “Calling Out Rush Limbaugh and Other Narcissistic Psychopaths.”


    I agree. Many despotic leaders and ill-intended media mavens are mentally ill or personality disordered. The key is a well-funded education system, so people can discern the messages.

    Hi David,
    I love your pic “brain_000005809739xsmall.jpg” could I use it? Is it copyright? I would like to put it on a conference flyer for our Universal Design for Learning grant. Thanks!

    Hello Mr. DiSalvo

    My name is Anson and I’m an International Journalism student from the University of Central Lancashire in the UK. I read your article “Are social Networks Messing with Your Head?” and I think it is really interesting. I’m doing a journalism project featuring the affect of Social Networks addiction to young people. Could I develop a contact with you and ask you several in-depth questions in early October and in the future? My project is a year-long assignment and I really want to interview you, as a social science expert and writer and add your comments into my features.

    Thank you very much!

    Hi, David, I’m reading the Etch-a-Sketch chapter in “What Makes Your Brain Happy…”.

    In the section on restraint bias you do not mention the myriad 12-Step programs that try to help people stop various addictive behaviors. It strikes me that the originators of them all, the founders of AA, somehow stumbled on the secret that lowering the expectation of being able to kick a habit was more likely to be successful than raising expectations.

    AA members are constantly told they have little or no hope of staying sober on their own, and that even with the help of AA the chance are they will relapse.

    It always sounded counterintuitive to me to harp on it like that, but it worked for me. Now I have an idea why.

    Excellent book, so far.
