  1. Charles Manson must be delighted to hear that. It’s like the effect of donning the mask in The Mask, the Jim Carrey movie: if you’re a natural hero and a good person, the mask will reinforce those qualities, and if you’re a villain, putting on the mask will only make you more evil.

  2. As kids we’re told, “Sweetheart, You can be anything you want to be.”  Then the big red bus of life runs you down ;-)
    I like Tom’s calling forth greatness.
