Phi Ochs to Robin Williams

'After years of prolific writing in the 1960s, Ochs's mental stability declined in the 1970s. He eventually succumbed to a number of problems including bipolar disorder and alcoholism, and took his own life [by hanging] in 1976." Robin William's death by suicide is eerily similar to Phil Ochs' suicide. Both troubled by bipolar disorder/clinical depression and alcoholism/drug use. Och's creativity was in music, whereas William's was in acting/comedy.

Enrolling in a 12 step program?

The anonymous programs do not have 'enrollments.' Nor do they have membership lists or requirements. Each member decides on their membership. No tests, no assignments, no files or records.

I've submitted an edit on your behalf; but since I'm the one who submitted the edit, I can't review/publish it myself. (Note, this is a wiki; you could have submitted an edit yourself to correct the problem. Your edit would be submitted for review by an authorized reviewer, such as myself. The main limit on all this is that we can only make substantive changes to the article for the first 24 hours after publication; after that, if something's wrong, we'd have to issue a correction — which of course we'd rather not have to do.)
