    Mental health advocate and former Rep. Patrick Kennedy made a plea in the Washington Post urging people to stop calling Donald Trump 'crazy.'The son of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy started his op-ed by detailing a number of names the Republican nominee has been called: 'crazy,' 'psychopath,' not 'sane,' having a 'screw lose' and suffering from 'narcissistic personality disorder' Ė none of which are actually diagnosed.'With all of this damaging rhetoric floating around in our national political discourse, especially what we hear from and about Trump, itís no wonder that people remain silent and the suffering continues,' Kennedy argued.(snip)'And believe...

    An ambitious and controversial push to erect America's first offshore wind farm has been dealt what some call a potentially "fatal" blow after two utility companies pulled out of commitments to buy energy from the lagging operation. The $2.6 billion Cape Wind project, a private operation benefiting from millions in federal subsidies, is attempting to pioneer offshore wind energy in pursuit of an eco-friendly, sustainable energy supply. Wind turbines would be installed off the coast of Massachusetts' Cape Cod in Nantucket Sound. But Cape Wind is now in limbo after utility companies terminated huge purchase agreements.
