    Default Advocacy Group: Haunted House Name Is Insensitive

    Advocacy Group: Haunted House Name Is Insensitive
    By Associated Press
    Published: October 12, 2010

    SANDUSKY, Ohio --
    An Ohio amusement park won't change its Halloween attractions including a haunted house that prompted protests by mental health advocates.

    Cedar Point spokesman Robin Innes said Monday that the park reviewed concerns of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and determined no changes are needed.

    The group asked the park last week to drop attractions called "Dr. D. Menteds Asylum for the Criminally Insane" and "The Edge of Madness: Still Crazy." The group said they promote false stereotypes about mental illness.

    Innes says the "HalloWeekends" displays do not depict reality and are not intended to be disrespectful.

    The Sandusky Register reports an alliance official says the group is disappointed but won't take further action.


    LOL, oh my gosh, this group is just insane and crazy!!
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    "The Edge of Madness: Still Crazy." = ELVH
    "Dr. D. Menteds Asylum for the Criminally Insane" = 5150

    Personally, I think the group itself promotes a false stereotype of Americans.

    Sandusky went to hell as soon as Callahan Brake Pads went under due to Tommy Callahan's incompetence.

    Shouldn't they make haunted houses illegal because they give zombies, ghosts, mummies, serial killers and vampires a bad name?

    Oops scratch that. Vampires are now pussies due to Twilight.

    Saw a very pretty forty-ish lady this weekend and she was wearing a Team Edward t-shirt.

    I thought to myself "wow, that's spooky".
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
