oh, it must have been hard for the likes of you to get by in a world that you just can't see through

I highly recommend this piece from NPR:

NPR - My Lobotomy.

It's told by a man who had a transorbital lobotomy at age twelve, and his search for closure and answers today, at age fifty-six.


There's more information here, and a Fresh Air piece on the doctor who performed the procedure here.

Very interesting (and sometimes touching) stuff.

The Fresh Air article gets kudos for (of course) mentioning The Ramones.
