I've written before about my immense regard for Garry Trudeau's The Sandbox
milblog. Today, Owen Powell (aka
SGT Roy Batty) posts about his experiences in DC promoting the book Dunesbury.com's The Sandbox
, visiting the Pentagon, the Vietnam memorial, and Walter Reed Hospital.
It's humbling to this "professional writer" just how powerfully Powell writes. As John Atkinson likes to deadpan, it all comes down to having something to say and saying it. Most of us barely clear out throats, Powell, by God, says it. Bravo.
