People Are Funny

It’s an old reference, and probably many people are missing many old references in Stephen King books set in the past. In the 1960’s people depended on shows like Art Linkletter’s People Are Funny and Kids Say the Darndest Things to show us what normal was.

If I had to choose one thing that makes Stephen King great, it is that he understand that people want to find a way to say they’re normal…and no one is normal…it is perfectly normal not to be normal.

Stephen King’s Hearts in Atlantis is a deeply heartfelt collection/novel and essential reading.
