What maternal pride Canada Scott seems to take in her young son's dismantling the family's bicycles and auctioning the parts, therefore stealing from his mother, brothers and sisters when he was only 8 or 9 years old. And what a shame that the publisher couldn't get Scott's book on the market in time to celebrate the first anniversary of the L.A. riots.
This accomplished sociopath doesn't want to be a criminal anymore. And why should he, when he can so deftly manipulate the callow and crass in the publishing industry?
