    3 Faucets and 1 2 3 made the front page of the Entertainment section via a brilliant write up in The Lancaster [PA] Sunday News. The article was written by Stephen Kopfinger; who has high familiarity with OCD from a previous great article he did on Oprah's OCD Camp (with Dr. Oz and Philadelphia anxiety expert Dr. Jonathan Grayson).
