Theodore Sturgeon, speculative fiction writer and visionary, once formulated a "Revelation": "90% of everything is crud," though "crap" seems to be the word he was groping for. Cruel, maybe. And frankly, does the half-good, the good-in-spots, or the really-bad-with-a-couple-of-redeeming-moments counts as crap?
