Matthews may be the most ridiculously transparent of the Village idiots and scribes, but he is far from unique. The story isn't him, it's the sick culture that has nurtured him and allows people like him to flourish.

He is just the ultimate cartoonish manifestation of the Village. Still there's something sympathetic about him. I suppose it's his oddly childlike nature which inspires some sympathy from me. I wonder if he was just too shy to come out and play with us?
