Harry Stack Sullivan; almost forgot about him. Interesting gay man. Prominent Psychiatrist, but the medical school he attended was third rate: it folded and closed. He adopted a teenage boy who was, if memory serves at all, which is questionable, a patient. Wonder what happened to that fellow. Wikipedia hints that they were lovers. I did not know that it was Sullivan who coined the term "significant other". I'm staying away from parataxic distortion; it might cause dandruff (even though it was Julia Child who attributed dandruff to the use of margarine instead of butter).
