Vide infra pro risibus.
Gordon can't even quote his "professors" at Vanderbilt correctly.
Or was this rather at Millbrook School, near those Vassar girls in
Poughkeepsie --- where he played Lieutenant Barney Greenwald in Herman
Wouk's "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial?"
Gordon got to bag Captain Philip Francis Queeg, [that was not his naval
rank] who seems to remind him of a sackful of righteous fragments of
suppressed anger against his own Father --- which he has apparently never
been able to disentangle and expunge from his psyche.
Therefore, poor, sorry isolated Gordon seems to see Humphrey Bogart's/Edward
Dmytryk's/Herman Wouk's *fictional* character "Captain Queeg" in every
strong male he runs up against.
Don't we have a good therapist on this list who can take this fellow in
hand, put him on the couch and exorcise all these Baby Boomer traumas and
possibly "scars on his soul, engendered by abuse." I mean this fellow is
obviously crying out for professional help. Surely someone can help him
expunge these terrible demons that appear to have enslaved him.
