Email from Javier Iribarrren.
I read today in Counterpunch your wonderful article about the walk to Haskell. As always, I feel it is a privilege to have you covering this shame and giving it exposure. Jay is doing substantial work at a very personal level, and you are giving it the public venue so that it resonates with the average citizen. For that, thank you from my heart.
So I am writting to thank you for this, and also to correct the fact that I am not a psychiatrist. My doctorate is in clinical psychology, so the correct way to describe me is as a doctor of psychology (i.e., a psychiatrist is actually a medical doctor-M.D.-and I am not one of those). In fact, I cannot even call myself a psychologist, since you have to have your license for that, something that due to my professional commitments, I still have not gotten around to do it.
Take care and keep up the good work!
