  19. In the "Utterly Perfect Murder" by Ray Bradbury I think Doug Saulding is insane, why I think Doug is insane is because he thinks his wife can fly and he talks to himself like if he was talking to his best friend.

  41. In the Story "The Utterly Perfect Murder" by Ray Bradbury. I believe he is sane part of the reason I think that is because at the end, He looks at Ralph and sees how much Ralph needed him more than Doug needed Ralph. Making even an ounce of thought during that part of the story theoretically means he is sane. The whole "BANG" thing in my point of view is partially funny and therefore doesn't really give off the vibe as insane and more of a funny vibe.
