"Let others complain that our age is evil; my complaint is that it is paltry. For it is without passion." (Kierkegaard, Either/Or, 1843)
To my profound astonishment, I'm quite sad about this. He's got a lot of class. And despite the arrogance, when he talks about protecting his players he comes across as a fundamentally good guy, with a great gift for friendship. So the soap opera will be that little bit more paltry, in Kierkegaard's terms.
Everything's less fun when the cool kid has to go home for tea...
