What about the concept of career versus work as well. Is this uniquely
American? In case you don't know what I'm referring to ... there is a
concept amongst us 9 to 5'rs that there is two forms of employment. First,
is defined as work or job ... you go there you do something you get paid.
Second, is a career ... you like what your doing so much you'd do it for
free ... luckily you don't have to.

Psychopathic killers, however, are not mad, according
to accepted legal and psychiatric standards. Their acts
result not from a deranged mind but from a cold, calculating
rationality combined with a chilling inability to treat
others as thinking, feeling human beings. Such morally
incomprehensible behavior, exhibited by a seemingly normal
person, leaves us feeling bewildered and helpless.
