- Hmmm, it reads more to me like you are being modest about what you are
able to provide to people who are facing truly horrible circumstances.
Equally, finding your column to be negative and sarcastic? Are we
reading the same column. I do not mean to belittle you in ANY WAY but
speaking as someone who makes his living with those two attitudes
(www.collateraldamage.biz) that column came across as nice and
informative. Also, speaking as someone whose brother played for the US
Army team in the George Bush Desert Classic, a little nay-saying
sarcasm helped me to get through that incredibly long year.
