Flagg; Astute comment, as "The Outsiders" was like a bible to me and my gang. A couple of years later, they actually introduced it into the English Curriculum, giving it's coolness cache a nasty chest wound in the process, but also a much wider readership. Not that it wasn't very popular when the 'Mike' from the story loaned me his copy, but it hadn't yet become as ubiquitous among my demographic as re-runs of 'The Brady Bunch'. I haven't read it in at least 30 years and never saw the movie. I've been meaning to do both.

Pirateface; I'm nowhere near as much like me when I grow up as my writing is.
