Mister Magoo has always appealed to me. His blindness showing his naivete, and inability to become oriented in a sometimes bizarre world, at the same time exposes the insanities surrounding all of us. It does so in a kind, gentle manner, clearly showing an absence of judgemental or hostile attitudes. He is simply lost and confused. My desire to achieve this capacity of calling attention to the injustices and unfairness all people face at one time or another, with humor and equanimity, is captured by this cartoon figure. It is in this sense that he has become my role model.
