  •  "All boys are bad... It's axiomatic..." (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Stephen King has always been able to capture this type of self-righteous evil in his bad guys, with religious "reform schools" near the top of his list of hells on earth. Every time I hear of a private school getting public funding to indoctrinate kids, I think of the Rev. Sunlight  Gardener in "The Talisman," by King and Peter Straub. (There were a lot of these real-life hell holes in Texas, if I recall). One of Gardener's favorite sayings was "All boys are bad... It's axiomatic."
