I might give alms to his body; but his body did not pain him; it was his soul that suffered, and his soul I could not reach" (2342).

He devises a plan to get rid of Bartleby, rationalizing that he is helping the scrivener, when in truth he is bribing him. He says, "I told Bar ...

He isn't. If it seems odd, at this point, for so many to be confused about Michael Jordan's identity, it's only because Jordan makes it confusing. He does not own the Bulls, and he isn't general manager, but as sure as they lost their opener to the Celtics and as sure as they drifted through the first two months of the sea ...
