    It’s called free will, kid, and it can be abused.

    Mainly because the casting director keeps hiring villains.
    And good and bad can be relative terms.

    If the casting director did not exist, it would be necessary to invent one. With apologies to Voltaire.

    This is too deep of a philosophical discussion for Skylar and most of the rest of us especially at the time we normally read these missives from our favorite cartoonists !

    If Life is a long three act play, then it must be Intermission.

    They could be siblings, part of the “no good without bad” dichotomy.

    On a casual scan, I thought it was Belfry. I believe the Senator’s elaboration on the three acts might be more interesting than the padre’s.

    “All the world’s a stage.
    And all the men and women merely players…”
    BTW, am I the only one to notice the resemblance between the padre and Sen. Belfry??

    The senator is fatter, doesn’t wear a clerical collar, nor wear glasses. And he resembles the late Thomas “Tip” O’Neill.

    Exactly right. For example, some people refuse to accept reality as it is, pretend that some myths (but not others) are literally true, and ignore the evidence against their position, as well as the fact that there is no evidence in favor of their position.
    It’s pretty sad, as many of them still believe in magic gardens with angry wizards and talking snakes. They spend their lives trying to explain away reality, rather than living in and finding out about it.

    But, they are free to do so, and I support their freedom (but not to the point of allowing them to coerce others into having to accept their ideas).
