Conforming


What do these (mostly) fictional characters all have in common: Frasier Crane, Gil Grissom, Gregory House, Rupert Giles and Blandwagon?


Is it that they're all highly intelligent? They all have discernment and good taste? They're all about as romantically successful as a battery chicken?


Nope. Guess again.





On the one hand, the company is august. On the other hand I seem doomed to a life of middle-aged irascibility. Oh well. Hopefully this will be offset by vampire slayers.

They are all the alpha male (or magna cum laude) in their social group, they've all been divorced, they're all the best in their field, and they provide rich entertainment and a feeling of vicarious achievement. Except Rupert Giles; I have no idea who he is.
