Jun-15-07  Whitehat1963: His real name is Benjamin Raspail. A former patient of mine, whose romantic attachments ran to, shall we say, the exotic. I did not kill him, I assure you. Merely tucked him away, very much as I found him. After he'd missed three appointments.
Jun-15-07  Whitehat1963: If you didn't kill him, then who did, sir?
Jun-15-07  Whitehat1963: Who can say? Best thing for him, really. His therapy was going nowhere.
