Good writers are essentially muckrakers, exposing
the scandalous condition of the human soul.
It is their job to strip veneers from situations and personalities.
The rest of us accept our fellow beings at face value,
and swallow what we can not accept.
Writers can not: they have to prod, poke, question, test,
doubt, and challenge, which requires a constant flow
of fresh victims and fresh experience.
