6pm - "True Life: I Have PTSD" - One in five veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan report symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a mental illness that causes depression, inability to trust, constant alertness, nightmares and fits of rage.

From reality TV to spelling bees, college admissions to college ball, in our society competition is celebrated and encouraged. And who better to compete with than the people you spend all your time with?
