Nugget #126 -- Flush 'Em

Don't get me wrong. I still live by the axiom
I learned from my friend James R. Tuck:
"Life's too short to read shitty books." 

And I still draw a hard line in the proverbial
sand after a few paragraphs. I haven't learned
to have more patience with bad stories, just
that like a tasty bite of apple could be the
sole good spot on a bruised piece of fruit,
sometimes I need more than a mere sentence
to get the true feel of a story and its writer.
