"Dear Dr. Love,
I never liked the way your name feels like a bad joke to all those people who are struggling with their marriages. Maybe you should change it to Dr. Apathy, which they (the 1960s shrink set) said was the opposite of love - instead of hate - and I absolutely agree with this. In fact, I think if they ever remake The Night of the Hunter, which is one of my favorite movies (or was, until Jerry got religious), they might rethink the tattoos that the preacher has on his hands. Lord, Robert Mitchum was scary there using his hands to show the fight between love and hate, and him a cold-blooded killer hiding behind Scripture. But imagine a preacher (or a marriage counselor) with hands saying LOVE and APATHY. You love all those little games; you can put your hands behind your back and say, Pick."
