Simple Tricks and Nonsense | The official website of R. Jason Bennion. Mostly I'm just an analog kind of guy lost in a digital world…

I don't want to speculate on the possible truth of the allegations. I mean, I hope they're not true, but I have to not talk about it. My first instinct is to respond with snark and anger and say things about the accusers. I want to deflect this news and not deal with it because it's bad news that I don't like hearing or thinking about. I think that's a very human reaction, but it's not the reaction I want to have. I don't want to be mad just because I love Kevin Clash, and I don't want to leap to his defense and start calling names like those idiots who were overturning vans to defend Jerry Sandusky last year. I don't want to be in that kind of denial.
I feel betrayed, angry and uncomfortable. And I'm just a fan. The worst I have to deal with is disillusionment. I think I'm getting off pretty light in this whole deal.
