COLLECTING AS AN ILLNESS 

   On a related note, a column by Michael Batz in the July 19th 
   edition of "In Pittsburgh", a local arts and entertainment weekly, 
   asks the question, "What worthless piece of crap human being 
   collects these damned multiple TV Guide 'collector's covers?'" 

   "People collect all sorts of stuff - coins, stamps, baseball cards, 
   dolls, urine - but whatever it is, there's usually a legitimate reason 
   that boils down to love, money, or mental illness.  Surely the folks 
   over at TV Guide aren't depending on the mentally ill to fill their 
   coffers....  Instead of buying all six TV Guides this week, you 
   would be better off just giving me the $10.74, and when you turn 
   65, I'll just slap you upside the head and call you an idiot.  You'll 

   be spared the embarrassment of realizing it yourself, and 
   meanwhile, you'll have space for other collections..."
