God Bless PFC Jamie Harkness. The US Army's newest PFC, but still our neighbor's little girl!
Btw, I'd be interesting in reading any data that supports your "sad but true" assertion that "most Americans don't read much anymore." Intuitively it would seem that just the opposite is more likely to be true. Or do all those millions upon millions of Americans using their computers have access to some new fangled' talkin' interwebs that I haven't heard about. Amazon ain't just a river in South America.
I'll take the river down to still water and ride a pack of dogs.
