Order 'Though obviously in a sense provoked by Miss Helen's story, I've never quite been hooked by it. I'm a fisherman and I know the difference between a fish that's just playing with your bait and one that says, Write! I'm It! and takes your rod down and you sit back and put the hook deep in.'

-- Athol Fugard
