Interestingly, my sweetie and I were just discussing Evil Wil in Big Bang Theory. And we might have hit on why it works for you, and why that show is so appealing in general. The idea first came up when we were watching Victor/Victoria, and remarked that the cast were obviously having a blast making it. And that makes a big difference - people enjoy watching actors having a good time. And I'm guessing you enjoy playing Evil Wil. And the rest of the cast enjoys playing Leonard, Penny, Howard, Sheldon, Raj, and the rest. I know I would.

Your point about the mayor is a good one. When he first pulled that stunt, my sweetie agreed with him. I didn't - that's a misuse of government power, and I'm against that, no matter who the target. After discussing it, and thinking on it a few days, my sweetie decided she agreed with us. In that discussion, I think we uncovered one of the hidden assumptions that has been bedevilling people discussing the issue. On the one hand, the man has the right to express unpopular opinions, and give his own money to causes he believes in. But when he makes those opinions and expenditures part of corporate policy, that's going to effect the corporation. Some people will agree with it, and perhaps bring them more business. Some people will disagree, and perhaps take their business away. Naturally, I support their rights to do either. However, I personally don't see the logic behind bringing business to the corporation to support the owner's right to express his own opinions. It's a subtle point, and (IMHO) at the root of the misunderstandings. Add in some strong feelings and charged language, and you have the makings of a brouhaha.

As it happens, I needed that reminder today, as I was tempted to do something (more accurately, fail to do something) that would have been a dick move. But a friend posted your reminder - and I did the right thing. So, both thanks and happy birthday!

That is utterly excellent! Judging from the picture, you had a blast with it. I'm quite looking forward to the video.
