Crazy Jason Russell?

I'd never heard of Jason Russell before he was reported to have run naked in daytime San Diego, yelling incoherently about the devil and swearing at bystanders (link). It seems the guy was overloaded by sudden fame after a project he began in 2003 "went viral" in March 2012. He'll now spend some weeks in hospital. Get well soon!

He's lucky to be WASPish (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) -- otherwise he'd be shot by police or tazered. Maybe his deluded mind shortcut to fame?

Performance pressure made him already creepy-looking. Celebrity America...
