********** Huh? Character flaw? Are you implying a breach of personal responsibility? Surely you jest. This poor man was obviously a victim of a corrupted political system. Why, with the proper "social reform," one that nurtured him and accepted him as he is without presuming to judge him, he could have been a college professor of bioethics.
