Further to Thursday's Dean meditation, I am reminded of the chapter in "Homer Price" when a stranger comes to town. The populance assume that the bearded individual who has lived in seclusion for the past twenty years is like Rip Van Winkle, and proceed to make a series of decisions based on this assumption. When it turns out that he is really closer to the Pied Piper of Hamlen they are forced to re-evaluate-- and their mouse problem, which the stranger had proposed to remedy, remains unremediated. I wonder how far I can torture this analogy? Is Haliburton like the fat, doughnut-fed mice that live in Uncle Ulysses' lunchroom? Perhaps I am over-thinking this again.
