Mindy asks, What did the dope call Dr. Laura in the first place?

I researched this question with several psychologists for my Jessie Drake mystery, DEAD AIR, which deals with a radio talk show host who enrages a listener with her on-air advice.

The reasons callers phone in, even though they have heard many other callers verbally spanked: The caller thinks he or she is special. The caller dervives tremendous satisfaction from "belonging" - it's an almost cult-like high....


Dr. Laura has the unenviable luxury of self-righteous narrowmindedness

and I also don't know why anyone would ask her for advice ... unless they already planned on a certain course of action, and wanted to reinforce their own decision by a "Dr. Laura said..." sop...



There's something pathological about Dr. Laura and completely twisted and skewed. Of course, I also think the same thing applies to George Bush so maybe it's a chromosomal abnormality.

And considering the freaky right thinks that marriage is so sacrosanct...wouldn't marriage then trump illegal alienship provided that the participants had opposing chromosomal makeup?

They're making it up as they go....this is one scary ride we're on.


why di dthe dope even call dr laura in the first place?
