A radio show run by psychiatric patients  SARAH PAVIS  ·  NOV 19 2012

You'd think a radio show broadcasting from inside a psychiatric hospital would be either illegal, demeaning, extorting, or just plain weird, but Buenos Aires' Radio Colifata ("The Crazy Lady") is, by all accounts, endearing.

"Green cows run wild," he says, "milk and milk and milk spilling. Green organs spill. Intestines spill." An interned leans over and whispers to me, "That's Dr. Vazquez. He is the only one allowed to interrupt the program. He worked as a surgeon here. His wife, a nurse, lives here too." Doctor Vasquez leaves and his wife, who wears her nurse's uniform, runs after him. Maria returns to her poem.
