Eric's finally back from teaching on the East coast, so we watched a bit of television before going to bed tonight. Specifically, the most recent episode of Dr. Who. So "The Professor" opens his "watch," regains his identity, and starts threatening his lab assistant. "I'm not 'the professor!' " "Who are you, then?" "My name is . . . the Master."
And Eric asks, "Is that bad?"
A simple "yes" doesn't really seem adequate under the circumstances.
