    I lived in Switzerland. They speak 4 languages but they are all very strongly tied to their Swiss nationality. Permanent immigration is essentially unheard of.

    If saying "blame whitey" is his way of saying "I would like to see further information regarding this before I come to a conclusion" then he really needs to work on his communication skills.

    I did think the books were well written. I was pretty invested in a number of characters. But, as you say, I did find the ending to be very disappointing.

    I know nothing about the Leonard history but why is Eddie Coyle relevant to Leonard. I saw his book at the end of the last episode of Justified and didn't know what it meant.

    I don't think that Jaime competed in that tournament at all. The canon only refers to a single tourney that Jaime fought in prior to joining the kingsguard.

    Well far be it from you to ever cast blame at anyone.
