caveman invents the wheel in crafting classLast week’s cartoon, on how important it is to treat yourself with the right food, is here, and click Like on my Facebook page to get notified of new cartoons as they get published.

Today's cartoon is about rehab programs for any type of addiction or substance abuse. I know the basics about 12-step programs, but very little about going into rehab, which actors and celebrities do frequently, often more than once.

(Of course, it's not just famous people -- one time I was chatting with a friend in the gym, and he pointed to a surprising number of folks working out next to us who were in various programs.)

I am not positive, then, but I suspect that residential treatment programs must have some arts and crafts programs in those beautiful facilities. I like lanyards, and nice pottery, but wouldn't it be fabulous if they were also working on the next great invention for civilization?
