I, too, love Dmitri.  His moods are unpredictable and generally entertaining.  But he was beyond ridiculous with his talk of “making way” for that Pole!   Did you hear what he said?  “You must not run anyone down, you must not spoil people’s lives; and if you have spoiled someone’s life – punish yourself…if you’ve ever spoiled, if you’ve ever harmed someone’s life – punish yourself and go away” (411).  Melodrama!  Is there any logic in making a martyr of yourself this way?
