    I took on No Exit when I was about 16.  I wasn't motivated by anyone or anything, it was just a random selection from the Library where I spent an inordinate amount of time.

    Like many kids growing up in the early 60's, the choices for entertainment were limited.  Our local library was safe, quiet and easy for me to get to on the bus.  I was a book junkie and tasted all kinds of delights.  

    I finally got around to Sartre in college but only in passing.  I think it's time for me to get a copy of No Exit and try it again.

    When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin
