A fourth call no less! The original guy is probably sobbing in the corner somewhere. Now, a strongly accented woman has called from GMI. She said her name is Kasey or Casey. That is the signal for me to leave her hanging. Hilarious!

I borrowed this volume, 'Shooter' by Jack Coughlin, Casey Kuhlman and Donald A. Davis and finished it in the course of two days. A fast accessible read which reveals little insight of the operating methods of a sniper. I wish there were more. As for the psyche and mentality, the volume doesn't feel particularly personal. This is, of course, not literature, just a straight forward narrative.

I borrowed and read this volume from the library. I had been meaning to buy 'War Games: The Story of Aid and War in Modern Times' by Linda Polman.
The book is an exposé on the the aid industry and how it co-exists with low-intensity warfare world wide. Shocking but not surprising and not unknown in many of the instances.
