Do you want Professor X poking around in your head? Did the Jedi overuse their “not the droids you’re looking for” hand wave trick?

Spoilers for the X-Men franchise and the TV show Babylon 5.
Dr. Greg Haley holds a doctorate in rhetoric and writing with a research focus in hermeneutics and identity construction. He writes professionally on a wide range of topics from politics to mental health and philosophy. His new website, www.theyrejustwords.com will launch Oct 1st.
