How to use demented in a sentence?

  1. President Barack Obama:

    The skylines lit up at dead of night, the air-conditioning systems cooling empty hotels in the desert, and artificial light in the middle of the day all have something both demented and admirable about them the mindless luxury of a rich civilization, and yet of a civilization perhaps as scared to see the lights go out as was the hunter in his primitive night.

  4. Bill Chumley:

  5. Lisa Moreno-Walton:

    Those of us who have worked in global health are familiar with the decisions that had to be made in Africa during the Ebola epidemic, if I have one ventilator and two people who need it, and one is a 13-year-old-boy who is likely to recover, and the other is an 80-year-old woman who is demented and has sacral decubiti, who do I intubate and put on the ventilator ? In that case, the decision is made on the likelihood of recovery and quality of life.
