In the last day or so, we've had one young man who really ought to have known better do something very, very fucking stupid, and a shouting match in the halls at Xavier's.

The young man, I shall leave to his girlfriend, who will, I'm sure, chastise him appropriately.

The shouting match in the hall isn't really my business. I don't know who it was, but I will hazard a guess that it was the result of someone suffering a sense of perspective failure. It always is.

Remember boys and girls: if you do not know what perspective is, you can take an art class. You will find it both educational, and therapeutic. I am told that both education and therapy are good things. Having had as little as possible to do with either, I wouldn't know.

I'm really only posting because I have temporarily run out of things to read, so if you have a problem, feel free to take it up with my staff.

Actually, fuck it. I think I'll pop up to Charlie's place to point and laugh at Nate. See you all soon.

And remember: art classes.

Are you the guidance counsellor or what? I mean, yeah, the paperwork specifically prohibits torture and blackmail, but if the American government don't class waterboarding as torture, surely that's enough to get around the rules....

. . . This raises weird questions about your time on the job.

It's true, art can be useful. . . . except for that one time where we kept having to remind the kid that scissors are for paper, not groupmates, but in that case the approach was the least of the problems.

They still ask about that Wilder kid, don't they? Haven't seen nor heard from him since Pete decided to teach him paper machete....

After meeting Pete, I guess the appropriate follow-up question is "How big was the fire?"

Actually, Pete is good with kids. According to my sister, he's just a big old soppy...

I'm all kinds of fun. A regular playground of a guy.

You and I both know that your sister, she does not live in the same world as the rest of us.

I've never been very good at art.

That's why they have classes. So people can get better.

Maybe I'll take up pottery then.

There's a looking at things from every side joke in here, but I think if I go for it properly, the metaphor will snap.

So according to your logic, I have the most perspective of all. It is a relief to know that my degree work is doing something useful.
