Subject: (urth) Rape in Wolfe

Rant mode turned on:

Hey, look, get a grip.
         Wolfe is dealing with human depravity, almost all the time.
         He has some really bad women.
         He has some really bad men.
         Guess what really bad men, and even men who are not so bad, have 
been doing to helpless women for thousands of years? Right. You got it.
         Wolfe knows history. Rape is relatively rare in modern warfare, IF 
the army is American or British or Israeli or Western European. It's par 
for the course in all the rest of human history. Like in former Jugoslavia 
during the 1990s.
         A friend of mine visited Pakistan a few years ago. He said you see 
virtually no women in public. Why? because any unaccompanied woman is "fair 
game" for rape.
         Wolfe's rapes are offensive. They're supposed to be. You're 
supposed to feel like vomiting.
         But they are NOT gratuitous.

Now, rant mode turned off.
