Let me get this straight; if someone is good at something, we can't make moral judgments about their behaviour outside of the thing they do well? I mean, their acts take place "in the world" as much as whatever it is they're good at.
Not sure I can buy that.
BTW, I think Buddy was the bee's knees, in spite of never having a thing
for him like some other guys I came up with. And I can't speak to his personality outside of the usual outsider's perspective. I'm just asking a general question here.
I remember Buddy had me at about 5:33 of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eIRj...eature=related
