You defend your point admirably, Amos, and I see what you're driving at. But surely you are not comparing the admirable Chongo Chimp to scoundrels like Huck Finn's alcoholic father and the murderous Injun Joe? Rather you should compare him to gritty heroes of fiction such as Philip Marlowe or Indiana Jones, men who face danger with equanimity and style. He is, after all, a Chimp who has blazed trails for many others to follow.
I miss John Kennedy too, by the way. And Robert. I wonder what they'd have accomplished if they'd lived longer? And would I like them as much if they had...or would I have become disillusioned with them? One thing about dying early in life....your image never gets a chance to tarnish in the harsh light of the passing years, but remains "forever young".
