The Power of the Word distilled to the Power of a Letter. This is a marvelous look at how our thinking can go large and small at the same time. With all the power the prevailing society had to subjugate a race in every way, it still had to lean above the page and fret about a single letter, lest the Truth prevail and destroy a convenient way of life. Meaning gets invested in so many ways. Sensibility is not coupled to morality. The extreme sensitivity becomes a form of protesting too much.

You're a smart man, JD.
