It's cool that the Beatles will be on iTunes. Fundamentally: More good music available more places is a good thing. The thing I'm most interested to learn this morning is whether you'll be able to buy the band's output on a song-by-song basis. If the band is trying to maximize revenue, it would try to force Jobs to break from store policy and sell their music in only album format. But that would be hypocritical, since the Beatles, like most other bands of their era, were about singles for a very long time. And it wouldn't it be cool if you'd never heard "Flying" before, and then someone played you the trippy instrumental track from "Magical Mystery Tour, " and then, $1. 29 later, you could be walking around with the tune in your iPod? Right?

Over 57. 7 million Americans - 26 percent of the country - live with a diagnosable mental illness in any given year. Yet twothirds of those affected never seek treatment in large part due to the stigma of being labeled "mentally ill, " and the resulting discrimination in social relationships, housing and employment. Tragically, every 17 minutes someone in American commits suicide, 90 per cent of whom are living with some form of mental illness. Mental illnesses remain the leading cause of disability in the US, costing society over $190 billion annually.
