Federal Court Rules Congress and President Bear Responsibility for Fixing Veterans’ Mental Health Crisis
Catch-22 is alive and well at the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, with an able assist last week from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. In Joseph Heller’s novel Catch-22, under Army Rule Catch-22 a crazy pilot could be grounded if he so requested, but the fact of his asking was proof of his sanity, and therefore he could not be grounded no matter how crazy he was. Today, Catch-22 means a situation whose only solution is denied by a circumstance inherent in the problem, or any no-win situation governed by circular logic.
