"Why can't therapists do something about a psychopath getting his dirty

little fingers on the nuclear codes?" a patient asked me.


It was a week after the presidential election. There was anguish in my

patient's voice.


I put on my therapist-wise air and intoned, "I hear how upset you are at

what's happening in the country and that people who should know better

aren't taking care of you the way they should."
