Couldn’t we give these people GPS tracking? (smart phones et al).

Seriously, it saves on the heartaches for family members and anyone sympathetic with such incidents.

I don’t understand why our government wastes incessant amounts of money on art that resembles excrement while services for those in need like this man are in a constant state of disarray. Mention goes to art only because it’s the worst example of discretionary spending gone delusional. There are so many other illustrations.

I’d rather that $700,000 on the newest public cat scratch-post be allocated to healthcare for the elderly. Or maybe those cool millions spent redoing the Gungahlin Drive Extension after they originally made it one-laned.

+1 – both reduced arts funding (which has no actual value for society), and increased health spending for those who actually need it (which has alot of value)

Either that, or we implement some sort of explicit “Logan’s Run” health system, rather than the discrete Darwinian one we have at the moment.

LUUURRRVVV Logan’s Run!

And while we’re on B-grade scifi films of yester-year, how about Demolition Man? If we freezed our crims, that would sort out the ‘AMC is full’ drama.
