Like the Popular Mechanics cover. The Apocalypse Now quote brought to mind Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness which I read a long time ago. More recently I read his novelTyphoon which is probably the best sea storyI've ever read. Interesting man.
I'm more worried about getting lasered by the police when I drive fast.
Yes, Conrad was one of the greats, Ray -- all the more astounding considering that English wasn't his first language. I re-read Under Western Eyes most recently. Rob -- Don't tase me bro!
