    Just got a card* with Santa on the couch in a psychotherapy office. The shrink is sitting to one side, she's taking notes on a pad. Santa says, "When I was a kid my parents told me I didn't exist."

    * egad, yes, I mail cards to friends and they mail them to me--it's the latest fun covid pastime.
