    Our young Mr. Nuttingham approves of all the virtues that he lacks.

    So far, ear buds with Jarvis and notes from Pater and Auntie Nell. I hate to say it, but I’m beginning to think Young Master may be a fraud….

    With all the special notes, they might send him to a “special” school “by mistake”.

    @Sisyphos

    People with financial means often feel that their financial advantage makes them special, and give themselves a pass when doing things that they’d otherwise view as unfair. They fully believe that they posses attributes which are honorable (the money stacked up is a measurement of that, after all) and excuse any ‘cheating’ they do in pursuit of their goals.

    People with financial think they’re special? Say it ain’t so!

    So very true – however – dodge ball still sucks.

    Dodge ball was one of the very few sports I did well at. I couldn’t throw worth a darn, but being small I was a hard target to hit. And I moved like the wind.
    If ole Sedgie had been in my class (yeah right, I went to a very tiny country PUBLIC school in North Dakota), I would have made sure our little kickballs got switched with medicine balls.

    Dodge ball is fun when you have a cannon for an arm.

    Growing up in the seventies and eighties it was more a bloodsport in school closer to the movie Rollerball ( James Caan version).

    “People with less financial means do the same things, except that they use different rationalizations. Ethics and the lack thereof exist across the classes.”
    -
    I realize that other-than-ethical behavior exists across the socio/economic spectrum, and used to think that it was pretty evenly dispersed. Some life experiences suggested that I should reassess the wealthy as being more prone to selfishness and self-centeredness, but I dismissed that as myopic perception on my part. But then, I started reading some research that suggested that rich people are more likely to be, um, phallus-like. The most recent was just a few months ago:

    “Simply being poor isn’t proof of being ethical…”
    -
    I quite agree, mythologizing poverty as being inherently better only makes for warm feelings and good stories.
    -
    “…although that is one of their delusions.”
    -
    Please don’t assume that this is exclusive to the poor. Delusion, just like ethical lapses, exist at all levels. Painting the poor as a self-deluded mob makes them sound monolithic rather than each being individuals who could and do escape such behavior.

    And then Sedgie’s eyes became bigger and bigger as
    his mouth formed a silent scream..The bowling ball was a blur
    thrown chest high….

    Seems Sedgie is well aware of his shortcomings.

    Today is Sept 4 in my town. I just read the Sept 4 cartoon. The comments section is based on Sept 3’s cartoon. When did I lose the day?
