In case you’re wondering…

The “bang bang” that starts yesterday’s post is not an insensitive reference to the picture of the guy getting shot in the head. No, “bang bang” is the term that war correspondants use to refer to “action” when they’re in the field. Along the lines of “Did you get any bang bang today?” or “There was some bang bang in Kabul this morning, but I think it’s over now.” “Bang bang” is also the name of the novel I’ve been wanting to write since about 1993. The problem is, it can’t be my first novel, so I have to write another one first.
