Another Bloody Love Letter

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I'm reading Another Bloody Love Letter, by Anthony Loyd. He's this war journalist with a heroin addiction. It's a great read, though he uses a lot of war terms that I don't understand. And is going around inside countries with names I don't recognize, which gets a little confusing. The best part though is his writing. He's excellent. My favourite line so far:

"There is nothing like the scene of a war crime in the empty apres-killing silence in which to feel the reverberation of evil, as if the act itself causes a rip in the ether, allowing space for it to echo on devolved from the march of time."

Not too shabby!
