to concentrate upon the causes of Sainthood in the
Afon-Bedd Tri County Asylum with these constant
interruptions from current affairs. Call him self
centered if you have to, but your correspondent has to
stop absorbing himself in the Balkan machinations around
the year 1914. It's an area that has been well studied
by better minds than his, and helpful to be able to
pronounce the names of the characters involved, which is
something way beyond your correspondent's capacity.
Nedeljko Cabrinovic give it a go.
Nedeljko was a
minor. Too young to execute. He was sentenced to twenty
years in prison for his role in the assassination of Duke
Ferdinand. He died in prison in 1916 of tuberculosis. And
this is what Nedeljko thought about his participation in the
causes of the First World War; "We are not criminals. We are
honest people, animated by noble sentiments, we are
idealists, we wanted to do good, we have loved our people,
and we shall die for our ideals." The point about Afon-Bedd
is that this sort mumbo-jumbo never comes up, so current
affairs don't offer much inspiration to this writer of pulp.
