    And your tribute tonight has me ready to read through the Marlowe novels again, for probably the dozenth time.

    One of favorite lines:

    “A lovely old woman. I liked being with her. I liked getting her drunk for my own sordid purposes. I was a swell guy. I enjoyed being me.”
    - Farewell My Lovely

    Marlowe is for me the antithesis of Mike Hammer - he uses his wits more than his mitts, and mocks himself when he resorts to crude methods.

    Thank you!

    Inside of me are two dogs. One is mean and evil. The other is gentle and good. The two dogs fight all the time. Which dog wins? The one I feed the most.
