My middle son has been begging for bagpipes for Christmas. Okay, I'll get him a set, but I won't ask Rap to teach him.





I'll ask Mom instead.

My new quad core has settled right in, but as you say, Amos, the office did get some cleaning when the new toy arrived. After two weeks I'm still tweaking the things installed and remembering passwords and such.

Is MOM going to get your old computer as a hand-me-down? Get rid of those auto-fill credit card files or she'll go nuts shopping on your accounts.

Mom:

My Xmas present has been installed early; it is a 3 gigaherz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB of RAM and 3 MB of L2Cache and a 1 gigaherz bus. It has ust been updated to OSX 10.6 and it shines and twinkles and does things--many, mnay things--very, very fast. Om mane padme om.

I don't think there is a virginal in a Mariachi band, either--at least I have never seen one! Virgins, now, I can provide a plenty. They seem irresistibly AttrActed to me and I can't keep them busy enough...

Amos, just to show you that I hold no grudges, I will allow you a free lesson session on virginal Mariachi. You must supply your own virgin.

Next you'll be saying that krumhorn and bagpipes aren't in the Mariachi tradition either! Yet you, Amos, of all people, should know better.

Now, those were really different cultural sensibilities back then! Fascinating. They'd probably be very shocked to see the films we do now.

There is no "alpenhorn" in Mariachi, you know. Just in case there was a question. Here's an example.

Hmmm...I will allow it is possible an apology is in order, sir. If in truth you have provided Mom with free learning, then I withdraw all my complaints. However, I reserve the right to discover some new dastardly twist to this tale, based on hard experience.

LH: No, I never go down there anymore, because people ask me if I am Rapparee's brother and I dare not own it.

She is getting all of the lessons -- cello, harmonica, ukulele, bagpipes, smallpipes, sitar, krumhorn, forminx, alpenhorn, bowed psalter, nose flute, piccolo, bouzuki, cymbals, hammered dulcimer, bodhran, carnyx, and of course, glass harmonica -- gratis, free for nothing.

What sort of cad do you think I am, sir, that I would charge Mom?

Subcontemptuous conduct can be quantified along a spectrum ranging from utter slimeball to barely subcontemptible.

I do not bother to analyze it further in these hallowed halls. You may go to the gutter if you want to find an expert.

"Narcissists, much to the surprise of many experts, are in the process of becoming an endangered species.

Not that they face imminent extinction ? it's a fate much worse than that. They will still be around, but they will be ignored.

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (due out in 2013, and known as DSM-5) has eliminated five of the 10 personality disorders that are listed in the current edition.

Narcissistic personality disorder is the most well-known of the five, and its absence has caused the most stir in professional circles.

Most nonprofessionals have a pretty good sense of what narcissism means, but the formal definition is more precise than the dictionary meaning of the term.

Our everyday picture of a narcissist is that of someone who is very self-involved ? the conversation is always about them. While this characterization does apply to people with narcissistic personality disorder, it is too broad. There are many people who are completely self-absorbed who would not qualify for a diagnosis of N.P.D.

The central requirement for N.P.D. is a special kind of self-absorption: a grandiose sense of self, a serious miscalculation of one's abilities and potential that is often accompanied by fantasies of greatness. It is the difference between two high school baseball players of moderate ability: one is absolutely convinced he'll be a major-league player, the other is hoping for a college scholarship.

Of course, it would be premature to call the major-league hopeful a narcissist at such an early age, but imagine that same kind of unstoppable, unrealistic attitude 10 or 20 years later.

The second requirement for N.P.D.: since the narcissist is so convinced of his high station (most are men), he automatically expects that others will recognize his superior qualities and will tell him so. This is often referred to as "mirroring." It's not enough that he knows he's great. Others must confirm it as well, and they must do so in the spirit of "vote early, and vote often."

Finally, the narcissist, who longs for the approval and admiration of others, is often clueless about how things look from someone else's perspective. Narcissists are very sensitive to being overlooked or slighted in the smallest fashion, but they often fail to recognize when they are doing it to others.

Most of us would agree that this is an easily recognizable profile, and it is a puzzle why the manual's committee on personality disorders has decided to throw N.P.D. off the bus. Many experts in the field are not happy about it.

Actually, they aren't happy about the elimination of the other four disorders either, and they're not shy about saying so.

One of the sharpest critics of the DSM committee on personality disorders is a Harvard psychiatrist, Dr. John Gunderson, an old lion in the field of personality disorders and the person who led the personality disorders committee for the current manual.

Asked what he thought about the elimination of narcissistic personality disorder, he said it showed how "unenlightened" the personality disorders committee is.

"They have little appreciation for the damage they could be doing." He said the diagnosis is important in terms of organizing and planning treatment.

"It's draconian," he said of the decision, "and the first of its kind, I think, that half of a group of disorders are eliminated by committee."



I am concerned that if the DSM removes this listing certain habitués of these hallowed halls will possibly simply evaporate.
