:zz: Charlie Harris, as I live and breathe!


I'd like to introduce my very-long-term friend and college
 roommate Charlie, who I didn't expect to see turn up here.

The author of the famous line
"A man without faith is like a fish without a bicycle."
 (This was later coopted by the woman's movement.)
And husband of author-of-the-hour Judith Rich Harris,
 whose surprise views are shocking the psych. establishment.
 (See the fascinating page listed at the bottom.)

Best, T
