The Wasted Years





Title: The Wasted Years (Hillman 50-109)
Author: Jess Stearn
Artist: Unknown
Year: 1961

"You read about it in your newspaper but WHY did a pretty Texas teenager kill her brother 'just for kicks'? WHY did a 17-year-old say, 'I wanted to see how it felt for knife to dig into bone'? WHY did a clean-cut youth stomp a total stranger to death because he didn't like the tune he was humming?"
