Really, really too bad.

On the other hand, the final pages of "Infinite Jest" left me feeling just
like I did when I heard Shostakovich's fifteenth quartet, absolutely in the
presence of death. How a man could live with that, I don't know. I do what I
can to stay jolly knowing full well that the world is insane.
