There's Hawkeye and Trapper John back in Korea. I never did like those guys. They fancied themselves super-decent and super-tolerant, but actually had no use for anyone who was not exactly like them. What they were was super-pleased with themselves. In truth, they were the real bigots, and phony at that. I always preferred Frank Burns, the stuffy, unpopular doc, a sincere bigot.
Statements that could apply to most left-liberals I've known, from The Thanatos Syndrome
, a novel whose "reader is offered a sort of Catholic humanism that shades into romantic existentialism."
