This "masters in psychology" needs a psych exam herself.

Other news reports say that the victim was a Stanford med school student applying for hospital residencies and the perp was trying to sabotage this with her hacking.

To the editor:

I do not think that this part of your article is either germane or appropriate --

>>> "She is the daughter of former state Assemblyman Tom Umberg of Orange County, according to his online biography." <<<

With all due respect, I suggest that it be removed.

Thank you.

I would say keep it in. People need to know of their backgrounds. It is only right!

A large percentage of people in psychology orsychiatry need shrinks themselves. Part of why so many of them do so much damage to their patients. in the profession, it is called iatrogenic damage.
