There is a vast array of lurkers out there who do not embody noble virtues in their daily lives but who storm out to denounce anyone who puts a toe out of their self-defined PC fences. Anyone who would flame (and defame) John Grisham for these comments is despicable, but apt to be very powerful in this new world.
A challenge for the self-righteous fanatic: BRING DOWN JOHN GRISHAM.
What a sick bunch of PC lurkers. What a sad world when the fanatics can misinterpret a fine man's meditations on a friend's experience.
Now, I thought that SYCAMORE book could have been cut down by half . . . .
