It never ceases to amaze me how there is always some one eager to attack cultural and literary icons. Last year we had to debate the absurd claim that Mark Twain was homosexual. This year he's a pedophile. What I don't understand is why these idiotic allegations are made. I guess it is the equivalent of a headline in The National Inquirer. SLC was a man of dignity, courage, humor, intelligence and discipline. How desperately we need men like him today!
