In his own way, Satchel is brilliant. He gets a laugh from a comic, and feels happy. The person beside him doesn’t get the same joke, but Satchel’s response is gentle, kind and harmless. He doesn’t feel the need to put someone down in order to build himself up. As the comic illustrates, he knows it’s all harmless, and of no consequence. Satch knows he’s Canadian (as I am, sometimes so Canadian it hurts). Its important to be right in certain things, this is not one of them. The “cutting edge” here is knowledge of self. And should you think I am reading altogether too much into this … so be it.
