Ruth: Good Stuff

    There's nothing good in Ruth.

Okay, it is a nice story. And it seems to show some concern for poor widows -- even for those who are foreign-born and with different religious beliefs. But it's far from clear whether these tolerant ideas are endorsed or approved by the author. And there is no indication that such tolerance is a part of its message.

So although I like the story, there is nothing in it that I can honestly call "good."
