Breath of Fresh Air

These three characters were ALways mistreating each other over many years, so it was a breath of fresh air to have the charm of music bring them together harmoniously. 

George Herriman — Krazy Kat — March 31, 1941

Aw, Thom! When did Krazy mistreat anyone?

Y'know, Daniel, I hesitated when I phrased that, and then I thought it out. Krazy's innocence was a mistreatment of sorts, leading Offica Pup down paths that he didn't need to go, and Krazy's obsession with Ignatz and the passionate pain associated with him seemed to be a psychosis that led to Ignatz's return obsession. They all enabled each other, leading to worsening of conditions, rather than healing.

How's that for 5 cent analysis?
