What's bad is good and what's good is bad
Society is degrading. Going down the tubes; at least it sometimes seems. Those who smile like angels can have the tongues of snakes and those who are entitled to a complimentary paper bag to wear have the purest hearts of all. Then again, not everything is so black and white. There's good with the bad, but you have to look past the cover in order to read the pages within. Red Sammy can almost be called white trash for all he's described: "His khaki trousers reached just to his hip bones and his stomach hung over them like a sack of meal swaying under his shirt." He runs a run-down gas station and BBQ place too. But it was Sammy who was good enough to give gas to two guys on credit. They ripped him off and never paid. "Good afternoon," he said. "I see you all had you a little spill." Now, these seem like the words of a gentleman. Certainly not those of a serial killer call The Misfit. However, it is The Misfit that kills the entire family, a scholarly looking fellow and not the weight-challenged grease monkey.
