Back to Electro Shock Therapy, the most destructive "treatment" that's not "highly effective"

Ernest Hemingway, ECT's most "famous suicide victim"

I have a very important news story, that has been hotly debated, since the 1940's. It concerns the practice of ECT, or "shock" therapy, the kind that drove Ernest Hemingway to suicide famously quoting,

"What these shock doctors don't know is about writers...and what they do to them...What is the sense of ruining my head and erasing my memory, which is my capital, and putting me out of business? It was a brilliant cure but we lost the patient."[144]

He was released in late June and arrived home in Ketchum on June 30. Two days later, in the early morning hours of July 2, 1961, Hemingway "quite deliberately" shot himself with his favorite shotgun.[" Source Wikipedia.
