My guiltiest pleasure is Harry Stephen Keeler. He may have been the greatest bad writer America has ever produced. Or perhaps the worst great writer. I do not know. There are few faults you can accuse him of that he is not guilty of. But I love him.
People tell me they open my e-mails first, because they aren't demands and you don't need to reply. They're simply for pleasure.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
