Many people don't believe in monsters, but they should, because roughly every two weeks for most of the year one rears its ugly head in front of millions of people around the world.
This monster is out of control in many ways. It is bloated, introspective, muddled, frustrated. And you should see its teeth! It's a frightening thing to behold at times, and there's no doubt it has scared many people away, possibly for good.
Rather like Frankenstein's monster, this one could thrive in ordinary society if treated well, but is sorely misunderstood by large sections of the general public, who shun it rather than seek to understand.
