“Jeremy admits to himself that this is one of the best things about hanging out with Fred. His thirteen-year-old cousin is not interested in the politics of international conflict, in bumper-sticker morality, or in the cost to the economy or national psyche, things that have nothing to do with soldiering anyway. He’s interested in the visceral experience. In many ways Jeremy gives more credit to Fred’s opinions on the subject than to anyone else’s. Conveniently, Fred reveres him.”
“Nice Shot” was published in Crazyhorse no. 88.
It features video games, pizza, and heavy artillery.
