Conversations with the chair of the psychology department reminded me of how much he loves the word "interesting," which reminded me of Bugs Bunny's assessment of Rudolph/Gossamer the monster:
Hair-Raising Hare (1946)
Water, Water Every Hare (1952)
The lesson to be learned from Bugs is old but bears repeating: for the rabbits among us, brains provide the means for dealing with monsters, not brawn. Now if my friend and colleague can only tell me why we, like Bugs, find monsters to be the most interesting people. Shadow, Dr. Jung?
