Confirmed: Ethan Is ADD, NOT Pastafarian

Originally aired: Wednesday, February 15, 2017

There's some heavy personal stuff in this episode.  Ethan Millard talks about his very first visit to a mental health professional.  He's ADD.  It's true. Ethan and Alex talk a little bit about attention deficit disorder and all the weird tests Ethan took during his visit. Outlook is good. We also talk about a Pastafarian woman who was denied the right to wear a colander on her head in her driving license photo in The Hague, Netherlands.  Pastafarianism is a belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster.  They say it's a real religion but the Dutch court ruled it's not.  Whatever happened to religious freedom?!?! In Zen Headlines we paid tribute to Alex Kirry's new hero, Mike Ilitch.  Mike Ilitch passed away recently.  He was the founder of Little Caesars and the owner of the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Tigers.  We learned this week that he quietly kept Rosa Parks afloat financially for years.  No fanfare, just made sure she was taken care of.  Pretty cool.
