I've obviously missed something in the news. What is the "this" that you are referring to?
"Tell someone a person is guilty of rape and they will say either put him in prison or execute him. Tell them a man has molested his son and done what the excerpt of the book says of a four year old boy child, and they viscerally want to hang that sorry horrible excuse of a human being."
I'm guessing this has something to do with it, but I'm still not clear.
"This" is the story here: http://www.drudgereport.com/flashaw.htm
Basically, Webb wrote some truly sick things in some of his fiction books. I'd post some examples, but they are just too vile.
I got a little sloppy and in too much of a hurry and did not realize it until I had submitted the post. I should have included a reference to the current Jim Web book scandal brought to light by Senator Allen. That is the "this."
