    "It's my life, I can do what I want with it!"

    Rebellion as the lone response to yearning futilely for what will never be in the wake of a tragic past that's doomed to repeat itself. There's nothing glorious about youth that warrants its appreciation while it lasts on account of how it's panned out, and aggression serves as a lone stand-in whenever vulnerability reliably yields disappointment or disaster.

    The power of the written word and the cocksure egotists that proffer libel as gospel. No one can afford to antagonize columnists for fear of their tendency to self-aggrandize on the page and self-satisfy through the sheer, unwarranted desolation of those most innocent. As Lancaster's Hunsecker possessively worms his way into the lone nook of happiness his sister shares with another via scumbag vessel Sidney Falco, there exists nary…
