This is a response to Vol 15 Paul 4 ("Dog Therapy")...
I had to skim backward through the article to find out where the dog therapist lived, because I suspected Berkeley, and indeed it was.
One of the reasons I decided to move to the West Coast from New England was that I felt like I was a little too weird for the East Coast. I hadn't really felt comfortable in any place I'd ever lived on the East Coast, so I thought why not just go someplace where things aren't quite so traditional. But then once I got out here, I found that I couldn't even come close to being weird enough for Berkeley.
