Dr. Laura and Good? Mental Health

I had the opportunity to sit in my car in traffic today, and having XM satellite Radio i got to Listen to Dr. Laura on the radio. I am not sure who is dumber.... Dr. Laura or her listeners. I spent at least five years in school training to counsel people. Undergoing therapy can be a long, arduous process for some people, but can be highly successful. Dr. Laura has it down to a science. Complete and total cure in 45 seconds. If you don't like what she has to say, it's ok..... click!!! I wish I could do therapy that way. I don't know about you folks, but listening to her makes me angry. I wonder what happens to the poor people who wait forever to get through, only to be told, as she told one listener today, "don't have feelings.... that's what gets you into trouble." Don't have feelings? What the heck is that supposed to mean? And what happened to her Jewish renewal? At one point, I thought she had made a transformation to observant Judaism. All I ever hear her talk about now is her weekend(Friday night/Saturday) appearances. I guess the values that she holds so dear are only valuable for a short time. I don't know about you, but if I have problems, i am not going to Dr. Laura. Maybe Dr. Phil, but definitely not Dr. Laura!

A long time ago I heard that she gave up on her Jewish conversion and went back to practicing her previous religion. A real shanda.
