How to you say Chutzpah in Serbian?

This kind of stuff makes it very difficult for us fiction writers.  The story is so outlandish to be almost unbelievable.  But what I find fascinating is how far this guy got.  I'm a pretty quiet guy - don't like to draw a lot of attention to myself.  I'm not a power player.  I'm not a guy that steps on people to get where I want to go.  What makes another human think in their mind that what he is doing is okay?  That, yeah, I'll sell a senate seat and I'll sleep just fine.  The only answer I can come up with is that his brain is broken.  That he has something organically wrong in that head of his.  Wow.  Just can't get my head around this as it's so foreign from the way I think.

Lyle Lovett is without question the best sounding concert I've ever had the pleasure to attend.  And hey, the guy is damn good too.  Here is one of my favorites.  It just popped up on my iTunes as I was writing and I had to share....

Don't ask me why....

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air
If you listen carefully now you will hear.
This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - don't ask me why.

Bob Marley
