	While the general trend of your posting was good to hear, I think
you missed the boat with Jacobi. He had an affair with his female patient,
in a classic case of the (male-dominated) psychiatry controlling women and
trying to tell them what to be and how to feel.  Plus, he is married/involved
with his Polynesian Island-Doll, a submissive, quiet yet always-there-with
the-palm-frond, drink or massage slave if ever there was one.
	Jacobi is a feminist's nightmare, though he may be doing the 
right thing with Nadine.
