Whatever can be said against the military side of it (which makes for 
fun reading anyway), it is a remarkable psychological study (a hint, 
the title doesn't really refer to armor of metal...) . I re-read that 
every 6-18 months, and learn more about people I know every time 
(then again, I know some disturbed people). It's highly recommended, 
but it takes (me anyway) a lot of work to peel through the layers.

Now if I could only find my old (10 years) notes on an Armour game.

Devolution is very real to me.
Whenever I hear the "Odd Couple" theme, I get this image of Dennis 
Rodman borrowing Marge Schott's toothbrush.
Like most emails, this one is probbaly a first draft
