Who doesn't love 'Frogger?' It draws its power from our shared memories of powerlessness. Wherever we are now, at one time or another we have all felt the poor frog's anxiety in the face of the world's intransigence, its blind and callous disregard for our happiness or well-being.
D. B. Weiss
I would get bullied a lot. You know, it was the '70s and '80s, so it was a lot of racism back then towards Indian people.
