Friday-Afternoon Observations…

From a post-exam reader:

I was just watching “The Great Muppet Caper” (last day of the semester) and discovered an overlooked moment of Muppet insight. The gang have just caught jewel thief Charles Grodin red-handed and sweet, earnest Kermit asks, “Why did you do it?” Grodin shrugs and says, “Because I’m a villain.” Plain and simple, no “root cause” nonsense. I’ll remember that line every time someone tries to tell me we should be more concerned about why “they” hate us.
