The point (no puns by me meant ever, about the slang-code words,) with Bobby Sherman is I recollect having had a high school Behavioral Psychology teacher named Mr. Letterman (it might have been Letterer,) who’d looked approximately exactly like the then-ubiquitous on television and radio Bobby Sherman, and maybe some other popular person of that circa 1972 time. The concept occurs to me that the system, with some guy that looked like Allen Ginsberg hanging around that Bronx high school, might have worked up some cover-story that following me into the Army and through till right now has anything to do with a Behavioral Psychology project started back circa 1972, as there was one of the “Jomon” stereotypes at that school also, (Evander Childs H.S., Gun Hill Road,) similarly connected to Psychology, doing some Group psychology free-time seminar or some such, where we’d sat in a circle and talked about anything we wanted to while the leader listened, and I don’t recall its being for credit or anything but there was one trip to downtown and then in 1991 maybe I’d run into the same guy again without having recognized him. With Mr. Letterman, he had smiled at and called on me so much that I had had a small fantasy that he might like me, but my fraud-family life was so so awful that it wasn’t any difficult trick to lead me to have such the delusional thought and I’d quickly dropped it when he hadn’t expressed the same interest if I asked a question as the class broke up for the day, me taking Behavioral Psychology because biology let alone chemistry was too difficult for me, could never do math or science or foreign languages, philosophy or business, etc. Back then it was a new field, and had likely derived from the work of Wilhelm Wundt, listed above here, Germany 1832-1920.
