      You are welcome Gabriela. I’m glad you find it fascinating.

      Its also sad to think of so many wasted lives, with people mouldering away behind prison walls over unpaid debts.

      Best wishes, Kevin

        Those people mouldering away behind prison walls over unpaid debts reminded me of a scene from Dostoyevsky. The whole thing made me think of Dostoyevsky. I do not know why. You are right. It’s very sad.

      Perhaps because Dostoyevsky penned “Crime and Punishment”? Funnily enough, I’m meeting a friend this evening who is a fan of Dostoyevsky. He has, I think read most of his novels, including “The Idiot” and “Crime and Punishment”.
