Lucky students, getting to romp through the Tea Party! I think the Miller version is most faithful and most useful for students, the Disney version is useless except for a technical analysis of modern plotting techniques.

The key to the Tea Party is its aggression, as you noted. In a recent issue of the Knight Letter, (journal of the LCSNA), Chris Matheson pointed out that LC is best understood as a comic writer and that the Tea Party is probably his masterpiece. Basically it's the Marx Bros plus Three Stooges vs. phenomenology … and guess who wins?

If you wish to read the relevant KL issue, feel free to contact me.

Excellent blog.
