More Focus Groups for ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’ By PATRICK HEALY

When the kids were little, we went to a parents’ meeting at their school and I asked the teacher why all her students were geniuses in the second grade? . . . Matisses every one. You’ve made my child a Matisse. Let me study with you. Let me into the second grade! What is your secret? And this is what she said, “Secrets? I don’t have any secret. I just know when to take their drawings away from them.” — Flan (Six Degrees of Separation)
