Dr. Hickey, Thank you for highlighting Dr. Summergrad’s groundbreaking approach to psychiatry. He is a psychiatrist who knows the most important job for any Prez of the APA. (#1 rule of thumb for all shrinks aspiring to head up that formidable club: Become the greatest cheerleader!) You did such a splendid job breaking down his message, there’s little more to say on the matter, except for pointing out the mysterious circumstances preceding his rise to power. (I began researching his credentials online and can assure you, he has powers that no mere mortal should possess.) Dr. Joseph Biederman famously compared himself to God, but now there’s Dr. Summergrad. For whoever would like to observe moment that auspicious signs, from on High, foretold Dr. Summergrad’s rise to the APA stump of greatness, I suggest watching just a bit of the following one hour Youtube (of a talk that he gave on “The Future of Psychiatry,” at the Department of Psychiatry, Universiy of Florida College of Medicine, exactly a year ago). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvhYoKnE_-U Specifically, pay close attention to the very first 30 seconds of that Youtube video, which is most unsettling. If you watch it carefully, you’ll see the good doctor standing in the wings, before coming on to the podium, looking rather, well, devious, I think, as his presenter explains that the building has just been struck by lightning. She has an unintended deadpan (dignified academic psychiatrist) air about her, as she indirectly informs her audience, that there are no escapes from the coming hour’s lecture. There’s really nothing they can do beyond sitting tight through Dr. Summergrad’s talk, as all computer systems are down, even the toilets are not working.
