Yes.

It was on some program called 1A (First Amendment) on NPR. They had a specialist/counselor on there and reading all the influx of emails and tweets or whatever from women who are now suffering - suffering! as in lashing out at their kids, not sleeping with their husbands, not going to work, etc - from just listening to the testimony and now being triggered and suffering PTSD.

How should we cope with this moment of collective trauma?

We know that a lot of you have stories like Professor Ford’s to share with us. We feel honored that many of you have reached out to us to share your experiences. If this news cycle is bringing up traumatic memories, and you need someone to talk to or need help, the number for the National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-4673.
This is known as pandering.

You know your family needs you sober, just11b. We do too. Your sobriety is my support.

I've been on that road, so I will tell you this: Don't go there. You're needed by your loved ones.
I will pray for you and your family in this moment of trial.

It's the same moronic phenomenon that made a certain CNN mouthpiece feel that "thrill up the leg" while covering then Sen Obama.

If I blow a whistle it's going to be an old school signal to fire the FPF and blow the claymores. The FBI can hug a root.

Finding out that the cruising speed of a Husqvarna lawnmower is several knots less than the max speed of an angry herd of yellow jackets.

Trial and error never makes sense in hindsight.

Just when you think they can't get their head any farther up their own large intestine, they shove it further and believe it.
