Extended Book Review
By Harry Rosenberg

Frank confirms our worst fears pieced together from other sources. He does not use the terms sociopath or psychopath, rather he prefers the Freudian terms sadism, omnipotence, anal stage, grandiosity, paranoia, megalomania, and Oedipal complex. Yet he vividly illustrates how socio-psychopathic behavior arose in the most powerful man on earth.
When looking at Murders per capita one finds a huge difference in rates across the world. Every year Columbia murders some 385 times as many people as does Qatar! Italy, the home of the MAFIA, has a murder rate more than three times less than that of the US. The five safest reporting countries are all in Asia or the Middle East.

A brilliant observer more than a scientist, Abraham H. Maslow nevertheless offered a feasible hierarchy in describing human existence. A typical scientific approach might include experimental and control groups of randomly selected individuals where the experimental group would be assessed analytically to sort out their needs relative to a control group. If this seems impossible, it may be that it is, in fact. On the other hand, simple descriptive statistics are quite adequate to describe a cohort of people of any specific origin. Here there is still some difficulty. There might be needs not on the list, and in any event people understand words and interpret them differently.
Victim of a sting in a men's room at the airport, Republican Senator Larry Craig of Idaho, pleaded guilty of disorderly conduct. There must have been more to it to justify his plea.

Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter was "straight," but still his name appeared in the book kept by the "D.C. Madam."

Neither activity is all that rare today. But how they were handled says a lot about them and our society.
