The Thinker

Not a day for penetrating analysis, so I'll limit my comments on last night's Lost to highlighting two moments of catharsis. One was verbal: Sawyer's sublimely written and delivered speech to Jack that begins with a nod to Winston Churchill and the value of book-reading, then ends with a pointed illustration of the difference between thinking and reacting. (Alan Sepinwall has quoted part of it here.) The other was purely physical: Sun whacking Ben over the head with an oar. Oh, yeah, that'll hold me....
