"Making sense of the world" is not "saving" the world and i never said it 
was.  I know that literature will never save us from George W. Bush or 
Ossama Bin Laden or Paris Hilton.  But I read to help me make sense of MY 
world, and I will stand by my claim that many others read for the same 
reason.  Pamela
