The New York Times reports:

Doctors in New York City have begun to use a simple questionnaire to determine if a patient is at risk for depression

Sample quiz:

* Did you vote for John Kerry?
* Did you serve with John Kerry?
* Have you ever been married to John Kerry?
* Are you John Kerry?

That should cover it.

      Sound advice for the depressed from John Kerry.  It doesn’t literally make sense owing to a lack of antecedent for that but it’s good enough for most.

      It’s from his forthcoming book Thoughts for Little People .
