So, there I was, getting ready to publish an essay on the end
of the Iraq War, when I read this Op-Ed by Sebastian Junger.
And I'm like, this is great, dude, but it ain't gonna
fly, but this REALLY needs to fly, so I offer up THIS.
And this high school teacher buddy of mine gets onboard, and it's game on, cuz THIS happens.
And I hook up with the folks at the Minnesota Humanities Center and Boom... we do THIS.
And word got around, said this stuff is insane, man
got an Op-Ed in the paper and boom we're in the game.
