Christian, I am no stranger to guilt. As a matter of fact some times I feel that Catholics and Jewish people think they have the market cornered on guilt, well, you know what? I got some pretty messed up voices going on in my head too, ya know. When I was younger this meant my mom, whom after setting aside her career as an artist to raise 5 kids and nearly had maybe did have at one point a nervous breakdown from the lack of money, the accumulation of clutter and my argumentative nature.
In my adult life this means the custodian, whom after leaving Vietnam as an educated person has to toil with 2 and sometimes 3 jobs to send his son and seemingly only hope at respectability in this career driven society of ours to college.

I remember standing alone in NYC coming from a small town in Oregon at age 17 and seeing the enormous variety of people and thinking how great it would be to be with the deaf man, the black man, the man in a wheel chair, the businessman, etc,etc,etc.
One very nice Jewish boy. But still, I like the idea. Regardless, I felt sorry for the pathetic schlep at one point.
