Fun, breezy nose-thumbing here of "Celebrity Worship Syndrome," detailed recently by Dr. John Maltby in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease.

Brief aside of little importance: The author mentions that director David Lynch doesn't like cooking smells; no food is ever cooked in his home. This may sound like a strange neurosis, but I sometimes wonder whether such ideosyncracies flower inevitably when you can afford to indulge them.
