Dr. Murray?

I find it very disrespectful how you make fun of Dr. Murray Trachtenberg and his MMF patients. Do you not understand this is why they are taking you to court? They do not want you to make fun of their Doctor or themselves. They need help but they do not need to be made fun of. You should be ashamed of what you are doing to these poor people and their Doctor.

Dear Anonymous:

Thank you for contacting www.CyberSmokeBlog.blogspot.com. This site regularly gets visitors from around the world so we have no way of knowing who you are or where you live.

We're based in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. To the best of our knowledge Mr. Murray Trachtenberg is not a certified psychiatrist or psychologist although no doubt there are days he probably wish he were. Therefore, he is not a Doctor with patients like Dr. Phil you may have seen on television. Rather, he's a lawyer licensed to practice in this province.

The confusion may be over the use of the term "Counselor." In this country judges often refer to lawyers/solicitors/attorneys as Counselor(s) or Counsel for the Plaintiff(s)/Defendant(s). Their Honour could address Mr. Trachtenberg as Counselor Trachtenberg and be well within the accepted rules of protocol. It is even common for those practicing law to refer to their colleagues as such.

Of course, we would never do anything to cast aspersions at Counselor Trachtenberg or his clients - we have far too much respect for them! If we have, however, inadvertently done so in any way we profusely apologize all over ourselves. Hope this clarifies the situation for you.

Sincerely,
Clare L. Pieuk

Ha, ha. That letter is just too funny! Somehow, it kind of makes sense though...especially the part about "Dr" Trachtenberg's patients needing help and not liking to be made fun of...
