Since New Times (Dec. 9-11) titled my letter â€œBush is mentally ill,â€? a title that I would not have chosen, it appears that Phillip A. Moffat of Morro Bay misunderstood my letter to the editor.
I doubt that he read the book, because his rebuttal to my letter didnâ€™t make sense. It seems that all he was trying to do was defend his hero rather than opening his mind to the content of the book.
â€œBush on the Couchâ€? by Dr. Justin A. Frank is about a public figure who holds the highest office in the United States.
I feel certain that Dr. Frank could be sued if his material was not accurate.
One in three families has a member who has some degree of mental illness. I am a member of NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, SLO) and an advocate for the mentally ill. I found Dr. Franksâ€™ book to be fascinating and thought others might as well.
