Stupidity Getting Its Way

Expending tremendous energy merely to be normal

2 notes

This is one of the best radio stories I’ve heard in a while

The topic for NPR’s This American Life last week was “Will They Know Me Back Home?” - all about how we deal with the fact that (for Americans) we’ve been a state of war for over a decade. Act One of the show is a reading from David Finkel’s book The Good Soldiers. It’s such an intense twenty minutes. I need to make another pilgrimage to the bookstore to get me this book ASAP.
