Break out the Ritalin, folks! The U.S. Senate has designated today as â€œNational Attention Deficit Disorder Awareness Day.â€? To be honest, it almost escaped my notice that such an august occasion was taking place. Perhaps all the hullabaloo about war, terrorism, genocide, corruption, global warming, and killer spinach had me distracted. Gee, maybe I have ADHD. Heck, maybe the whole countryâ€™s got it. (And wouldnâ€™t that just send the pharmaceutical fat cats into a priapic stupor?) Seriously, given the humongous mess weâ€™re in and the yahoos we put in charge, how well could we have been paying attention?
