Kermit, while he is no saint, has achieved a wonderful equilibrium in which a common sense and a hunger for the absurd are nicely balanced. Were he to represent common sense only, he would be a prig; if he represented only hunger for the absurd, he would just be another of the show’s eccentrics. It is the fact that he has managed to embrace both extremes that enables him to function as he does.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah β€˜TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
