But when you're a four year old, that kind of truth is much harder to swallow, and since I was obstinate my As were malformed for many years to follow.

What I would have argued, if I had my current perspective those many years ago, is that the shape of the letters never really mattered. The people that spent years practicing their penmanship, with their protractors and their rulers, never really had anything better to say.

There's some pleasant stand-outs here--I love the tone and concept of Nanny, for instance, and Meddler comes to mind--but it feels obvious sometimes that this is a person at the beginning of their career, with room to grow. The way he handles women, ...more
