Modern madness

Christopher Lane reports that the American Psychiatric Association is debating whether “avid shopping” should be considered a sign of mental illness. More than that:
The APA isn’t just deciding the fate of shopaholics; it’s also debating whether overuse of the Internet, “excessive” sexual activity, apathy, and even prolonged bitterness should be viewed, quite seriously, as brain “disorders.”
That covers just about everyone I know.
