You may have heard about the woman who became claustrophobic in a plane flight from London to New York a few days ago, which then had to divert to Boston. The authorities determined that she is suffering from mental illness (Broken link, active August 18, 2006). But her son told the press that she is a peace activist returning from Pakistan (Broken link, active August 18, 2006). It seems there is a pattern emerging among the peace activists: disconnection from reality, violence, and mental illness. These must be prerequisites for the peace activist job.
