The New York Times: When the Hospital Fires the Bullet. “More and more hospital guards across the country carry weapons. For Alan Pean, seeking help for mental distress, that resulted in a gunshot to the chest.” By Elisabeth Rosenthal.
This American Life: 579: My Damn Mind. “The brain! It’s powerful! We have the story of how one man’s delusions lead him to a situation that’s just as strange as the worst thoughts his mind is cooking up. That story’s a collaboration with the New York Times. Our second story is about a man using the power of his own mind to deal with a problem.” (The download is free during the week after release.)
