    Why should he be quiet on the issue? He has the same right of freedom of speech as the rest of us. I believe that Zimmerman was in the wrong the night, I also KNOW there was not enough evidence to convict him of wrongdoing.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
