    "CHAOS AND MORAL IDIOCY"

    Extremely well written. Entertaining. Sometimes funny. Overall impression: let me out of here; I don't belong here; I went to Sunday School and college and my folks never even got a parking ticket! Why would I want to read about low-lifes buying a house for momma with drug money! Or married people who cheat on one another in the most destructive way. Or a Social Security office that calls the old lady back repeatedly and makes her wait for hours! You had me, Mr. Jones, and you lost me but good. I'm really sorry.
