With Foobs like this, who needs friends?

It's becoming clear that Lynn has another of the premises of the Declining Years to inject into the new-run era. Not only do we have to be reminded that Lynn thinks that children refuses to act her age to annoy and frustrate her and that John needs Elly to do his thinking for him, we need to be reminded that John doesn't need to have friends or a social life. Of all the characters, you see, John is the only one that does not have a friend to suck up to him and tell him he's great. This is, of course, because someone thinks that since he's a married man, he doesn't need connections to the outside world; not only does that keep him from cheating, it prevents him from being tempted with something far worse: formulating ideas that his wife does not approve of. He cannot be permitted the luxury of independent thought and action; all he is and does must be devoted to Elly's will. In Elly's mind, this is only fair because her life seems to be one of unrelenting misery.
