Youth need role models, but we shouldn't expect them to get them from
advertising or public life. Perhaps there are some athletes, entertainers,
politicians, corporate executives, religious leaders, even cartoons who make
suitable role models, but certainly not all of them.
You are the role model for your Cubs, not Garfield.
Maybe Garfield represents that boy we want to reach out to, who needs a
better role model.
