Quelia’s Comments
I just finished reading Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 and was impressed by the fine quality of his writing.  This is a terrific read for a time like ours during which we are dealing with widespread skepticism and frustration with war and the flaws of human nature.  It provides insightful reflection on what we should avoid doing, and saying, to our fellow neighbors.
