Sitting in the deserted law offices, [the client] had the feeling that he was all alone in the world, with nobody but [his lawyer] and the encoraching darkness. Things were happening quickly; this person he had never met before today was fast becoming a kind of lifeline for him.

To be a fan of the Texas Rangers is to live in your own peculiar sports hell.
. . .
[E]very franchise has had its bad moments.
The thing that separates the Rangers from pretty much every other MLB franchise is that they keep making bad decisions. Year after year. Generation after generation.
. . .
In 37 years, the Rangers have won just one playoff game. That was their very first one---on Oct. 1, 1996. . . . Under general manager Doug Melvin and manager Johnny Oates, the Rangers made the playoff three times in four years.
Those were the great years.
I think it's important to note that he says "the great years" and not "some good years." The article then delves into the great ownership of Tom Hicks, including his deals to get Alex Rodriguez and Chan Ho Park before concluding with the words that every Rangers fan wants to read and believe and hope:
Maybe Hicks has learned his lesson.
Yes, and maybe this is the year we beat the Nationals in the World Series.

[S]he hoped he would always think he had been as mad as hell, and not . . . not the way his face said he felt.
I think the demon's target is not the possessed; it is us . . . the observers . . . every person in this house. And I think---I think the point is to make us despair; to reject our own humanity, Damien: to see ourselves as ultimately bestial; as ultimately vile and putrescent; without dignity; ugly; unworthy.

It's your fiction that interests me. Your studies of the interplay of human motives and emotions.That's it. I love stories, and I love psychology. Go fiction!
