If it looks too much like a caricature you must determine if you are observing satire or stupidity. Is the speaker in on the joke or are they in earnest? This is the eternal appeal of William Shatner. This is the horror of Howard Dean and Cynthia McKinney. This is the difference between wink-wink-nudge-nudge easy humor and funny-always Shakespearean comedy and tragedy. Or Dennis Miller before and after he started taking himself seriously again.

Just as the FBI has learned, it is indeed possible to profile and anticipate the behavior and choices of even the sickest weirdoes we can come up with. Though even so, they had to wait for Hoover the cross-dresser to die before they could apply such "voodoo theories."

We're all human. We anticipate and react to the behavior of perfect strangers everyday. We make life or death decisions everyday. We handle deadly weapons within feet of hundreds of strangers all the time. It's called rush-hour traffic.
