HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD?

From a New York Times Op-Ed:
When this sort of thing happens, it is important to remember that about 5 percent of our population is and always will be totally crazy. I don’t mean mentally ill. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, 26 percent of American adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in any given year. So, basically, that’s just normal life. I mean crazy in the sense of “Thinks it is a good plan to joke with the flight attendant about seeing a bomb in the restroom.”
26% is mentally ill? That puts 19% thinking Obama is a Muslim in quite a different light.

I like the "So, basically, that's just normal life." I wonder if I'm part of the 26%.
