      Morally qualified apologalia for genocide aside, Card is less farce and more tragedy. I was a young fanboy: Card was a beacon for the enlightenment of the book, rather than it's dictation. I'm filled with a sort of embarassed disappointment, like I've tuned in to catch the scene where Jack Tripper acts vaguely effeminate, forcing Mr. Furly to demonstrate his Californian obligation to accept homosexuality in an act of comically blind faith.

      When I read Ender's Game,I read it right after The Forever War, and I thought it was a powerful statement in the same vein, that the caricatures were rendered thoughtful through the writer's craft and he was struggling to make everything human. I can understand embarrassed disappointment. Mine is tinged with bitterness and fury.
