Or has he? Psychiatrist Lia Pickford, M.D., is nonplussed while Dick walks into her place of work in small-town Georgia, with a cab idling outdoor, to invite for aid. And Cal Pickford, an established Dick fan surprised by means of the inside track of his hero's dying, is inspired whilst his spouse tells him of the visit.
