*************************************************** I'm just curious to understand why you feel you can be dismissive of an author like Ellroy who's accomplished so much more than you have. If he were just another middle class brat with nothing to say, describing violence he's never known to turn a dollar and entertain other middle class brats who otherwise do their utmost to avoid crime and violence, I might be more incline to agree with you. Since you've done all this reading, Kevin, why not make your posts more analytical of the plots and characters, and less antagonistic of writers who, as I mentioned previously, are a lot better than you are?
