Touche! Well said on all points... Steven PS Ellroy's not one of my faves, but at his best he is one of the great modern hard boiled writers, and as for us being the ones to "prick" his ego...well, I've been called worse, being a teacher and all. And we won't even go into what my first wife routinely called me...(think of Gloria in McCoy's THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY?). Which is the subject of my next post, strangely enough.
