Re: Oh, I'm not denying that people who do that kind of thing can't be sweet
Oops, hit the wrong key at the wrong moment and posted half a message.
My point is, nobody is all one thing. Harlan Ellison is sweet. He's also a pretty darn good writer. He's also a person who's made other people who didn't deserve it weep, or humiliated strangers for his own pleasure.
And now, he's also assaulted someone.
Which makes this no longer a question of whether he's a nice guy, or capable of beign one. It's got nothing to do with who he is, or what he's like. It's about a criminal act.
