Chapman (if he really meant it about the effect of that novel on him) might have been wondering about the meaning of life after such an event. But I keep suspecting the love of that book was just for effect.

Anyone in New Zealand or Australia you can think of as "worthy" to add to the three I chose, GUT?

Worst peace time mass killing, Port Arthur (which I love) in Tasmania.

There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
