What isn't true?
- that Russ Bate admits to ...?
- that Russ isn't frustrated?
- that Russ doesn't want his son to find ...?
- that moving to the San Francisco Bay area is the only way to to get a

Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of
madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and
the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and
aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and
vagaries of the crowd.
