… another party heard from

Mark Whittington writes, on Associated Content :

The controversy appears to be that of Jordan Zweigoron’s right to run a business and name his products whatever he wants to name them and people such as Oscar Wright who think that naming fattening food after mental conditions is somehow socially stigmatizing. One would want to have some kind of hard numbers that calculate the number of mentally ill people who do not seek treatment because of the social stigma and the number who do not do so because of some silly confection named CocoMarbles. One is not sure what term can be applied to people with the need to be perpetually angry at someone or something, like a strangely themed donut shop. That might make a name for a pretty potent confection.

Exactly right.  For all their emoting, folks like Oscar Wright and NAMI simply don’t make their case.
