I understand your ambivalence,Andrew,but the 11th Commandment is an important one to uphold: “Thou shall not get away with it.”


On a slightly related note, there is a fine movie that deals with this subject; The Reader.

I can recommend it.

(Andrew):  Thanks.  I’ve heard a lot about it.  I’ll check and see if netflix has it yet.

One wonders how much of the pain evident on his face is caused by his degenerating body and how much (if any) is due to recollection.

I always think “hell” would be to be near the end of your life and realizing you’d made a complete hash of it. That always seems worse than sulfurous flames.

Of course this presupposes some sort of conscience - perhaps not applicable here.
