> i had a hardliner mexican pdoc who'd grown up in the ghetto and laughed that "half of all white girls are borderline"--which to me signalled how lighthearted he was about pyschiatry; he'd been educated at Harvard but took neither himself nor his discipline too seriously...
I think there are a lot of psychiatrists at Harvard who are like that -- they make jokes that could be "offensive" to people who take things too seriously :-). (I liked said jokes.) I've never encountered a non-Harvard psychiatrist who didn't have that kind of sense of humour. Weird, eh?
