Righteous Indignation

So, I'm reading this "detective novel" titled The Second Rule of Ten by Gay Hendricks. Some of his writing is "clever" and "California" like the title. You see, the primary character is named Tenzing Norbu, formerly a Tibetan monk...his nickname is "Ten."

But this quote caught my eye: "...righteous indignation is the straightest route I know toward blind ignorance and away from any possibility of insight." Made me wonder how many times I had been righteously indignant...and wrong.

The author is evidently familiar with Buddhism and is full of these kinds of comments. I liked the first book, too. They are so reminiscent of the Travis McGee books.
