He Lights Up Our Lives

Sexual? What would make anyone think that?
The campaign of Republican Sen. George Allen on Thursday released excerpts from some of the war novels (Democrat Senate candidate Jim) Webb wrote between 1978 and 2002. Among the excerpts is a scene from the 2002 novel "Lost Soldiers," in which a man embraces his four-year-old son and places the boy's penis in his mouth. "It's not a sexual act," Webb [said] regarding the "Lost Soldiers" excerpt. "I actually saw this happen in a slum in Bangkok when I was there as a journalist." He defended his fiction as "illuminative."
Right. Now that I've encountered Jim Webb's novels, my life is brighter. Yours too?
