The point at which I stopped reading…

Pat Boone Cut-out DollPat Boone—"Is there anything more hallowed, more valued in any society or culture, than the sacred responsibility of teaching?… Personally, I don't think so. In fact, as I neared the end of my own high school years, I determined that I would train to be a high school teacher…. I decided the most worthwhile thing I could do was to teach."

Which, of course, Boone never did. Teaching may be more hallowed, but ripping off Little Richard is much more lucrative, judging by NewsMax's breathless declaration that Boone has "resid[ed] in the same Beverly Hills home where he has lived since 1960."
