I do feel sorry for Ma Meterlink (was that her name?) in Silvy Vale, but I feel no sympathy for her, if you get the distinction.  I can see why she did what she did and feel pity for it, but what she did was terrible and wrong and horrifying.


You don't feel sorry for Haroche?   How about all of the bad guys in Komarr?
