Well, the lack of resolution makes me appreciate the book even more. It highlights the provisional nature of our moral landscape (which goes along with the provisional nature of our man-made disasterscape). The Sheriff is a man of his day. I loved the book.

And although I thought it a lesser of McCarthy's, I still thought it was way ahead of the standard fare. I had a little problem with honesty in the book, which I've never had with McCarthy before.

I am rereading BLOOD MERIDIAN. It has lost nothing since I first read it a couple years ago. It's one of the greatest books I've ever read. Have I mentioned that before? <g>
