Happy Birthday, Siggi.

Sigmund Freud would be 156 today. While I think his theories are holding up about as well as he is, he was at least a thought-provoking individual whose ideas had an extraordinary impact on how mental illness, as well as the mind itself, is regarded. And even if he didn’t say “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar” it’s still a useful line.
