It''s true that Martha''s a little too sensitive--she calls Claire several times a week to discuss natural disasters and local crime. And Claire has a short fuse with her sister--she becomes irate when Martha suggests that the two of them attend couples therapy. And Max, the baby and a senior in college, is a little too happy-go-lucky--though not as lucky as everyone would hope. Still, their parents did their best preparing them for the world.
