That's a good question. Why do we pity schizophrenics? I don't pity
there condition as much as the way we, as a society, treat them because of
that condition. I pity the fact that we have forced them into "their own
little world" by not creating a niche in ours for them in which they can thrive.

Ahhh... I see. So you've taken the pill as well. (Some call "the pill"
just another meme, but we know better don't we?) Welcome to the other
side. Did you get your armband yet?
