Some interesting insights in an interview. I think my favorite detail is the role played by a much ignored institution...

In December, she went to a public library in Lawrence, Kansas. She was looking through books on philosophy and religion, and it struck her that people had devoted their entire lives to studying these questions of how to live and what is right and wrong. “The idea that only WBC had the right answer seemed crazy,” she says. “It just seemed impossible.”

I love this interview! She really is younger than her years. I know I was. When I lost my religion at 28, I was emotionally a babe. Very naive. That's what happens when you have no intellectual or emotional independence.
