I was referring to Adams's attitudes -- very bigoted and jingoistic. Perhaps he was being opportunistic. Quite aside from this, he was not a first-rate writer. I'm not surprised you found him boring. I read somewhere that Chandler was his friend, and the great Norbert Davis co-wrote a book with him. It's puzzling. Is it possible that sharp guys like Chandler and Davis did not see the weaknesses?
