Read what I wrote.
I looked up the fictional character in question, and then made the point that it is hardly advancing the debate to quote characters who:
a) many have never heard of, so the 'cultural reference' is highly questionable, and
b) is a fictional character, so his inclusion in the debate of an example of reality is a bit of a stretch.
We could all include some obscure reference to areas of our own interest, experience or expertise if we wished to do so. We don't because it is sloppy thinking, and makes one look like a pretentious knob.
The pain broke me, brotherhood relieved me, and from my wounds sprang a river of freedom. (Paul Dorey)
