I know that people will write the story this way, that we Americans love to build someone up, someone from clear out of the blue, and then we love to tear them down for no apparent reason.
But I think it's a bit different with this fellow. True, last Sunday evening was the first time 99% of us ever saw him, and he seemed like an earnest enough fellow, if a little...uncool, in that cool way of being uncool.
But by Thursday evening, he had shown himself to be a little...weird, in that uncool way of being weird.
He did what they call an "AMA" (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, using his sobriquet "StanGibson18" (Stan Gibson is a character in the Marvel comics, you see, and this handle indicates that there are at least 17 others assuming that fake identity, in that same sad way you used to get emails from "FlockOfSeagullsFan21204"). And this revealed some disturbing thoughts and notions that run through the Bone brain.
- He called the shooting death of Trayvon Martin "justified." Ho states that shooter George Zimmerman seems like "a big ole s--t bird." but synopsizes the shooting of an unarmed teenager as "Bad guy legally kills kid in self-defense. Sucks for everybody, including us due to the media f---ery."
