From the blog nerds of a feather:
Like most Americans, I want the dream job. But there’s a problem for me: I fantasize about being a war reporter. Maybe it’s the enduring effect of watching The Killing Fields and Salvador at a very young age. Maybe it’s my lifelong fascination with war and violence. Whatever the cause, when I see Michael Ware’s jacked up nose on the TV screen I think to myself, “He’s the effing man.” WAR IS BORING: BORED STIFF, SCARED TO DEATH IN THE WORLD’S WORST WAR ZONES has considerably dashed my dreams.
