    Re: Tom Cruise Rips Psychiatry on NBC's Today Show

    I am so fed up with this guy. How many times has he been in the news the past two weeks spouting off about his religious views and how everybody else is wrong? I know he has a movie coming out so he needs to talk about that instead. Nobody cares about your science fiction writer invented religion Tom.

    I don't agree with Tom's position on most things, but I do appreciate that he put that vapid stooge Matt Lauer in his place. Matt and his ilk feign expertise in most things and with the lightest of preparation go for the ambush in interviews. Cruise called his bluff and I think that's cool. I only wish he had turned the tables on Katie Couric, who I find shrill, inane and completely without merit.

    Cruise also called out David Letterman during his appearance on the Late Show for using the exact same list of questions as he had used during Cruise's last appearance in 2003. Letterman has gotten lazy, seeming to be just "phoning it in" for the last few years and Cruise exposed him. I doubt we'll see TC on The Late Show again.

    I'd be happy if we didn't see him period, given his apparent descent into insanity over the last month or two.

    Well, you know Tom did play a doctor in "Eyes Wide Shut."

    People who are on-the-muscle like Tom generally always catch normal people unawares.

    They're called nut cases.

    I'm not buying that he's really over the edge. I believe it's all part of the publicity campaign. He's a trained actor and he's using the publicity campaign and in-your-face persona as a role of its own. Although, I do believe Tom is diverting from the publicity script in an effort to hold the spotlight and do some freelance evangelization for his "religion."

    I have no clinical expertise, so I can't say if he's clinically mentally ill, but expressing your devotion to Scientology, in my book, makes you either a fool or nut case.

    My inside sources from Hollywood tell me that pictures of Tom having a "tryst" with another man are floating out ther and the Tabloids have banded together to try and outbid the Scientolgy backed bid for the photo's.

    In an attempt to help cover it up he has pursued many A list women hoping to find the right one (Scarlett Johanson quit MI3 because of his scientology pressure) Cruise first met his current flame after his assiatant scheduled a meeting in his office.

    How romantic.

    I'm no fan of Matt Lauer, even though he is a follow Bobcat, but I thought Cruise was really a jerk in that interview.

    Wow... seriously? I heard the rumors about Scarlett quitting MI3, and Cruise pursuing other younger leading actresses like Kate Bosworth, but not the first part.

    Well, I don't have any inside sources other than a good friend of mine who was an aspiring actor in LA for many years (before coming to his senses). But he told me several years ago that the word within the industry was that Cruise was gay. He also said the same thing about Keanu Reeves.

    On this point I agree with Crusie 100%. And so do alot of others within the field of medicine/psychiatry.

    I know from personal experience with my on son, who is now 16. We had him on ritalin when he was younger. It wasn't working and was causing other physical problems with my son which required other medications to counter (ex- lack of sleep for one). So we were drugging him to go to school, and then drugging him to get him to sleep at night. He was like Elvis. And through it all, it really wasn't proving beneficial for my son.

    We took him of of it years ago (when he was around 8), upon the recommendation of our family physician and another child psychologist we were seeing at the time to help our son in such areas as memory retention and staying on task. And I am so glad we did so.

    Ritalin has become the new drug of choice today for hyper-active kids whom our schools can't handle, or don't want to deal with. I was amazed at the number of kids in my son's class that were on ritalin. And a few of them (I knew their parents) were on such large doses (which I realize it's done by body mass); but one could see they were basically drugged and subdued, and their class participation was minimal.

    IMO, it's given/prescribed too readily anymore as the easy-all answer to kid's problems. School adminstrative offices are like a pharmacy. I can remember walking into those offices in the morning before school started and seeing kid's lined up for their medication (and the majority of it was ritalin).

    I can also remember quite a few heated discussions with teachers and school administrators back then who would tell me that we need to increase our son's dosage. I bluntly asked them "Are you doctors and psychiatrists? What makes you qualified to make such an assessment?"

    But I do agree that ritalin may be beneficial for some. But I just wonder how many kids in our schools are on it unnecessarily?

    Yes that's the hub bub from last weekend, BTW I have heard about Cruise for the past 18 years, from different people in the film community.

    I wonder what Kelsey Grammer has to say about this?

    Tom Cruise debating Matt Lauer on ANY subject. A real pair of intellectuals.

    Now that's funny.

    Almost as funny as Scientology.
