Ritalin Cures Next Picasso

WORCESTER, MA--Area 7-year-old Douglas Castellano's unbridled energy and
creativity are no longer a problem thanks to Ritalin, doctors for the child
announced Monday. "After years of failed attempts to stop Douglas'
uncontrollable bouts of self-expression, we have finally found success with
Ritalin," Dr. Irwin Schraeger said. "For the first time in his life,
Douglas can actually sit down and not think about lots of things at once."
Castellano's parents reported that the cured child no longer tries to draw
on everything in sight, calming down enough to show an interest in
television.
