May 15: On the couch

By Jake Brennan
04:00 PM

Tuesday, 6:30 a.m., and a headline with a hook: Woman gets suspended sentence for pretending to be psychologist.

For a minute there, I wondered if this was the same woman that my parents sent me to when I was a kid. Back then, they were freaking out because I was busy flunking out of summer school and blowing my money in Harvard Square record stores. The kiddie shrink did me no good though, because I'm still blowing my money in record stores. So maybe I was the victim of some phony psychological advice.

Well, I doubt it, but either way, this is a good story to write about. An ex-stripper, Louise Wightman, posing as a child psychologist, who then gets off with a suspended sentence - I love it.

We headed down to Chinatown today in search of the Combat Zone to film today's video. This just in: there is no more Combat Zone. Oh well, we managed. Sounds like Louise will too.

See you tomorrow,
Jake
