    Whats going on with John King? I haven't seen him on CNN in awhile and he hasn't tweeted in a couple weeks. Could he be in trouble?

    Stan Lee accused of harassing his nurses.

    Sources are lacking and it seems like the old man's not all there any more, but if there's substance behind it, argh.

    Are we really comfortable with throwing potentially senile, mentally confused elderly in the same bucket as the other scum? Not saying it is right for someone in that condition to harass or assault someone, but if a person is a good, up-standing person their whole life, and then gets Alzheimer's and grabs a nurse's *** when they don't even know what country they're in...I think I'd rather judge that person on what/who they were when they were completely mentally with-it. Its the same argument as finding severely mentally disturbed people innocent due to insanity. It isn't their fault.
    Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

    Hopefully people with dementia have legal protections built in. It is certainly not a secret among caregivers that patients are often disconnected from anything except basic drives. There's lots of sex in nursing homes. Sorry for your dinner.

    From a conversation I had with an adult care professional while my mom was suffering through Alzheimer's, that's a somewhat common thing to have happen in nursing homes and adult daycare centers. The fact that this is being reported is a black eye on the facility caring for him.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Yep, my mom worked in one of those for I don't know how many years.

    You cannot imagine how proud those old dudes are when they manage the occasional erection, and how eager they are to show off the deed when it happens.
    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    I have not one but two separate medical findings that my mother is unable to manage activities of daily living and should have her MPOA and POA activated. (They have been; tag, I'm it.)

    Once someone is in that state, they are not in control of their faculties. They've been deemed incompetent. As such, as someone said, they are not responsible.

    And as someone else said, "The fact that this is being reported is a black eye on the facility ..."

    All that said, if Stan Lee has been diagnosed with dementia, his POA should be suing some folks for libel/slander.

    Just a small quibble. Capacity is determined by the medical field. Competence is determined by the courts.

    There's a lot of big time supporters of the MeToo movement harshly criticizing these stories (Ansari and Franco) for just that reason.

    And dont get me wrong, the guys are acting like jerks but they dont deserve to have their careers destroyed over it. If the threshold now is "I was dating a guy and he kept trying to get me to give him a BJ" then every teenage boy might as well just go celibate or risk destroying their life. (unless he was forceful then that is different)
