I just came across the blog of a fellow flatfoot who has a better turn of phrase than I do. His blog is called The Warrior Poets and the author describes himself thusly:
My name is Christopher.
I work in a world where we wear body armour and carry automatic weapons and look for the worst humanity has to offer. I come home to a world of cuddling with two kids on a couch, hoping they never have to truly understand.
And these pages contain the stories those worlds produce.
Take a read it will be worth your while.
