Dorothy travels along the Yellow Brick Road, infused with God stuff,
filled with possibilities, magical ruby slippers on her feet and the
ever-enthusiastic Toto at her side. She comes to a crossroad where she
pauses, having no idea which way to go. In a nearby cornfield, a funny-
looking Scarecrow (played in the film by the seemingly boneless Ray
Bolger) hears Dorothy wondering aloud about her direction. The Scarecrow
comes to life and promptly offers her options, first pointing down one
road, saying, "That's a good way," and then pointing down the other
road, saying that road works just as well. Finally, he crosses his arms
across his chest and points in both directions at once. Clearly, on one
level, he can't make up his mind. On another level, the Scarecrow
exhibits the gift of second sight and the ability to exist cheerfully in
the midst of opposition.
