I think it’s the sort of book that loses something on a high school required reading list. Urban youth with free money, recreational cell phones, a secure roof over their heads and perpetually full stomachs really aren’t in a position to appreciate the work. …

I think these are the very ones who should be forced to read the book over and over and over.  These are teh ones who need to learn otehrs do not have such an easy life.

Preaching to the choir guarantees a loud Amen Corner, but helps no one.
