    / The Bulwer-Lytton fiction contest is \
    | held ever year at San Jose State Univ. |
    | by Professor Scott Rice. It is held in |
    | memory of Edward George Earle |
    | Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873), a rather |
    | prolific and popular (in his time) |
    | novelist. He is best known today for |
    | having written "The Last Days of |
    | Pompeii." |
    | |
    | Whenever Snoopy starts typing his novel |
    | from the top of his doghouse, beginning |
    | "It was a dark and stormy night..." he |
    | is borrowing from Lord Bulwer-Lytton. |
    | This was the line that opened his |
    | novel, "Paul Clifford," written in |
    | 1830. The full line reveals why it is |
    | so bad: |
    | |
    | It was a dark and stormy night; the |
    | rain fell in torrents -- except |
    | |
    | at occasional intervals, when it was |
    | checked by a violent gust of |
    | |
    | wind which swept up the streets (for it |
    | is in London that our scene |
    | |
    | lies), rattling along the housetops, |
    | and fiercely agitating the scanty |
    | |
    | flame of the lamps that struggled |
    \ against the darkness. /

    / Courage is resistance to fear, mastery \
    | of fear--not absence of fear. Except a |
    | creature be part coward it is not a |
    | compliment to say it is brave; it is |
    | merely a loose misapplication of the |
    | word. Consider the flea!--incomparably |
    | the bravest of all the creatures of |
    | God, if ignorance of fear were courage. |
    | Whether you are asleep or awake he will |
    | attack you, caring nothing for the fact |
    | that in bulk and strength you are to |
    | him as are the massed armies of the |
    | earth to a sucking child; he lives both |
    | day and night and all days and nights |
    | in the very lap of peril and the |
    | immediate presence of death, and yet is |
    | no more afraid than is the man who |
    | walks the streets of a city that was |
    | threatened by an earthquake ten |
    | centuries before. When we speak of |
    | Clive, Nelson, and Putnam as men who |
    | "didn't know what fear was," we ought |
    | always to add the flea--and put him at |
    | the head of the procession. |

    / We were young and our happiness dazzled \
    | us with its strength. But there was |
    | also a terrible betrayal that lay |
    | within me like a Merle Haggard song at |
    | a French restaurant. [...] |
    | |
    | I could not tell the girl about the |
    | woman of the tollway, of her milk white |
    | BMW and her Jordache smile. There had |
    | been a fight. I had punched her |
    | boyfriend, who fought the mechanical |
    | bulls. Everyone told him, "You ride the |
    | bull, senor. You do not fight it." But |
    | he was lean and tough like a bad |
    | rib-eye and he fought the bull. And |
    | then he fought me. And when we finished |
    | there were no winners, just men doing |
    | what men must do. [...] |
    | |
    | "Stop the car," the girl said. |
    | |
    | There was a look of terrible sadness in |
    | her eyes. She knew about the woman of |
    | the tollway. I knew not how. I started |
    | to speak, but she raised an arm and |
    | spoke with a quiet and peace I will |
    | never forget. |
    | |
    | "I do not ask for whom's the tollway |
    | belle," she said, "the tollway belle's |
    | for thee." |
    | |
    | The next morning our youth was a |
    | memory, and our happiness was a lie. |
    | Life is like a bad margarita with good |
    | tequila, I thought as I poured whiskey |
    | onto my granola and faced a new day. |
