Definitely. More meant to highlight the Scalzi take, than Morgan Freeman’s character. And frankly, any dissension of the form “X is problematic” is a solid argument against putting anyone on pedestals. I’m probably thwacking a dead idea at this point, but hero worship is toxic and bad for the gander.

(And think the best way to respect him is by not doing so.)

Martin O’Toole, a spokesman for the Georgia division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, said he understood the concern regarding COVID-19 but questioned the other safety issue.
