Update on the "I'm Schizo-phrenic" butane lighters.

Good news!  Several of us received a response from Gibson  Enterprises that the "I'm Schizo-phrenic" lighters have actually been out of production for awhile. Thank you, Gibson, for the information. And thanks to those of you who wrote to Gibson to express their views.

If you should ever encounter stigma on your store shelves, I encourage you to call it to the attention of the store manager and request the item be removed.  Think of it as an opportunity to raise awareness about serious mental illness and that although people may "have" an illness, no one "is" an illness.

Let's continue taking small bites of the stigma elephant, wherever we see it.

It really does make a difference ...
