I think Chandler had the right. Crime is a part of the human
condition. Look at what we mark as significant historical events ...
Code of Hammurabi, Ten Commandments. The law. Can't be a criminal
without it. What other literature encompasses so many? From Enron/Wall
Street to the streetwalker and pickpocket. It's the literature of real
life. All that tea-party nonsense only exists in very small parts of
humanity. Crime is something we all have in common.
