Could a Double Concussion be the Root of Linus Halloween Issues?

I've been tough on Linus Van Pelt the past few years. I used to enjoy his pontifications and curiosities, rising above his insecurities and attachment to his woobie. But his questionable theology invested in dichotomous squash and the word if, and his antiquated views of women have soured my thoughts about Linus. Upon closer examination, I wonder if some of his issues are concussion related. At the beginning of #GreatPumpkinCharlieBrown, Linus is caught up in the roll of a large pumpkin, and toward the end of the show, when Linus thinks he witnesses the ascent of The Great Pumpkin, he faints, hitting his head on the hard ground. Double concussion? Hmm.

Maybe Linus may get some consideration in future rankings.
