L.A. Psychologist Who Didn't Get Tote Bag at Mother's Day Angel Game Files Lawsuit (Dave McKibben, May 11, 2006, LA Times)

A Los Angeles psychologist who was denied a tote bag during a Mother's Day giveaway at an Angel game is suing the baseball team, alleging sex and age discrimination.

Michael Cohn's class-action claim in Orange County Superior Court alleges that thousands of males and fans under 18 were "treated unequally" at a "Family Sunday" promotion last May and are entitled to $4,000 each in damages.

The targets of the suit are the team and the Corinthian Colleges. Corinthian oversees Bryman College, which has an Anaheim campus and sponsored the event, its name printed on the bags.

Thousands of the red nylon bags were given to women 18 and older attending the Sunday Mother's Day game.

Pretty much had to be a psychologist, huh? He must have just had the tar beat out of him every day as a kid.

He should have the tar beaten out of him now.

Sounds like he deserved it, too.

This reminds me, has anybody else seen that pompous, touchy-feely psychologist who is portrayed as shacking up with Elisha Cuthbert on this season's episode of 24? I want to slug that guy in the face but Jack Bauer is first in line.

Bite your tongue Matt, that's C. Thomas Howell you're talking about.

I'm still waiting for his Irving Thalberg award for his work in the Outsiders, ET, Red Dawn, and, of course, Soul Man.
