Todd: If you would ever submit to deep analysis, as Larry French constantly urges you to, you would know that something in your own past prevents you from recognizing that Welles himself told people he felt guilty in the death of his father. But it's okay because back in those days, the late 1920's and 1930's, the Freudian psychologists were making a case that almost every man had harbored a desire to murder Old Dad. As you know, better than most, a whole school of Freudian Shakespeare critics sprang up around this notion.
Confession is good for the soul, Todd.
[Kruel Karl of the Ha-Ra Klub has gone in for his operation. The last time I saw him, he asked for Larry French, but I think that he has, in recent months, confused the two of you. You may be able to absolve yourself at last, by celebrating his complete recovery, seeing as how Karl suggested that YOU -- and your obsession with the perfect Gimlet -- is the reason he had to have the operation.]
Besides, Todd, you forget that Welles produced a two-part version of Hamlet on Radio in the 1930's.
The roots of father hatred, you surely recognize, and the curious tendrils thereof, run deep in the male psyche.
Repent, Todd Baesen, repent!
