Example text

He entered into a serious dialogue with the students and never abandoned it. Even as he strode the campus in his tailored three-piece suit, he was regarded as one of our own. If SDS had tried to take over his office, the rest of us would have thrown them out. The Revolution was a high-water mark for both Brewster and his cartoon doppelgänger, President King. But while Brewster left Yale in far better shape than he found it, King went on to preside over four decades of steep, uninterrupted decline at Walden.

Whereas the rest of us learned in order to pass exams, Scotty put his accumulating knowledge in harness and worked one scholarly pasture after another, confident of the harvest ahead. He had come to Yale to be intellectually outfitted, and he emerged from seminar rooms grinning, his brainpan sizzling like a wok. College was exactly as anticipated, and he was acing it on schedule. So certain was he that life revealed its mysteries in predictable fashion, he once blocked out an entire semester’s social calendar in advance, preassigning various women he knew to big weekends, thereby delivering to his grateful roommates a full season of hilarity.

Unlike the relentlessly directed real Scott, comic strip Scot is unfocused and ineffectual. And in contrast to the charismatic Coffin, whose rhetoric was passionate and robust, the cartoon version is given to listless platitudes. So the Reverend Scot Sloan, as well intentioned as he is, is hardly a salute to his origins. Not that you’d want him to be. It’s our flaws that instruct—and entertain. Whenever a writer creates a character who appears to be beyond reproach, it’s almost always for the purpose of setting him up.
