Unconditional Promise

Before I start reading my copy of the new biography of Jim Henson (appropriately titled Jim Henson: The Biography), I want to make this promise in writing: Regardless of whatever less-than-admirable aspects of his life I may find out about while reading the book, I will continue to love him as I always have, and will forgive him unconditionally.

UPDATE: Having read the book, I want to clarify: it's not that it focuses on the negative, it just doesn't gloss over it either. Which is a good thing. It's just a little hard to see one's hero brought down to human level, but it's also healthy.

With that said, I'm still not sure if I can recommend it to my mother.
