really liked it

Once in a while we all need a little scandal in our reading lives, but what sad, empty lives some people lead. I hope that when I leave behind my not-very-exciting and unglamorous life I will have left some mark of goodness or hope or contribution to *something*--these people haven't even made *themselves* happy in their pursuit of their own fulfillment. Money, tradition, travel in the Golden Age--it's all theirs, and they just blow it!
