RAINING METAL?
Yesterday I was speaking with my son who is a Marine stationed in Fallujah. Every so often I am lucky enough to get a phone call, but the conversations have a background noise. All I hear when speaking with him is mortar fire and machine guns hammering away at something. My imagination runs away with me, although it isn't an imaginery time. This is real gun fire, not fireworks on display. His CEO emails offer NO comfort.
