I had a discussion with a friend of mine about the Peanuts cartoon that ran this past Saturday.  Peanuts is a comic strip you don’t normally have to recall the previous day’s cartoon to enjoy, but this was a Summer Camp Story arc, and involved a kid who didn’t want to talk with anyone.  It seemed to be part of a running gag because it wasn’t necessarily funny by itself, but only when tied to the rest of the series.

Today’s Hubris is kinda like that.  Maybe not funny by itself… but it’s part of the pace.  I guess it’ll look good in the book.
