Dear Mr. Leadroot:

I'm forwarding some additional material that may be useful to understanding why certain personnel (Stacey Schaar and Christine Robertson) at Akin Gump said they feared I might be homicidal. It may be that these individuals suffered from a borderline personality disorder, and that their conscious fears masked unconscious jealousy in the competitive workplace environment.

See Novick, J. and Kelly, K. "Projection and Externalization." The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, Vol. 25: 69-95 at 79 (New York: International Universities Press, 1970). I overheard a conversation between two legal assistants (J. Robert Tansey and Christine Lambert) in May 1990, while still employed at Akin Gump, that Schaar was terminated because she had concocted a scheme to make herself indispensable--some type of document filing system that she, and only she, understood. When management found out about this, they fired her. Borderline personalities have powerful fears of abandonment; Schaar's apparent fear of termination (and her attempts to make herself indispensable) may have been related to abandonment fears, which, in turn, may have been insidiously related to her jealousy-mediated statement that I might buy a gun and "shoot everybody."

Borderlines crack very easily in an interrogation situation if you know what type of pressure to apply. Talk to ISU at the FBI. I believe Stacey Schaar graduated from Claremont College in California, if you're trying to track her down.

I'm also forwarding research results indicating that some persons (particularly Secret Service agents) are very good at reading nonverbal cues. It's not paranoia. See Ford, C.V. Lies! Lies!! Lies!!! The Psychology of Deceit at 218-219 (Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Press, 1996).

According to the George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry the act of reading "nonverbal cues" is paranoid--according to them, there is no such ability. Ironically, Jerry M. Wiener, M.D., is the past president of the American Psychiatric Association, the publisher of American Psychiatric Press, which published the above-referenced book by Dr. Ford.
