(Through Rose-Coloured Glasses)
The Grinch a bitter, stubborn man, also a catlike control freak with a heart “two sizes too small,” lives on snowy Mount Sussex, a steep, 3,000-foot high mountain in WhoCareville, home of the merry and warm-hearted WhoCares. His only companions are his pack of faithful guard dogs. From his perch high atop Mount Sussex, the Grinch can hear the noisy demands and inquisitions that take place in WhoCareville. Frustrated of the WhoCares’ trouble making demands, he makes plans to close down the town hall, by means of perogation, to deprive them of their democratic rights of voicing their opinions. However, this triggers an uprising, WhoCares take to the street, to the Internet, to the news media to voice their discontent. He learns in the end that despite his success in shutting down WhoCareville from the WhoCares, The Great Inquisition persists just the same. He then realizes that his job is more than just fame and glory, more than just political skills, more than just ratings, it involves responsibility, decency and democracy . He absolutely hates all these. His heart shrinks another size. Instead of apologizing and recalling town hall at once, he cancels the spring break of the WhoCares.
