“There has been nothing in other cases to approach it. It was orders of magnitude worse.

Genie's life was a wasteland.”James Kent, psychologist in a children's hospital

It is soaked with the blood of poets, theologians, philosophers, psychologists, biologists, and neurologists, along with whatever blood can be got out of grammarians.”author
