When I think of normal, I think of mediocrity . . . and mediocrity scares the f*ck out of me!
I know people who are embarrassed to be American. They don't like showing their passports. It's becoming a scary place. It takes someone very brave not to be quiet, someone who doesn't mind death threats, their life being turned upside down, news cameras outside their door. There is no freedom of speech in America anymore. They are not living up to the constitution. There's so much fear in America and control.
I don't usually like seeing things I'm in. I get really depressed afterward.
There are a lot of things I would have done differently, but Scully wouldn't have been one of them.
