Quotable: M.T. Anderson

“We forget men must be paid to kill. Even an act as simple as leveling a village is costly; rapine is not cheap; and children, I am afraid, will not burn themselves.” –M.T. Anderson, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume I

Ace Days: Military

I used to work for the late Tom Runge of Ace R/C.

Since Ace was a small company, you often got pulled off of your regular job to help do any number of things like driving people to the airport or unloading heavy boxes of catalogs. One day I was helping Tom and several older guys unload a semi. As we were doing it, I looked around and came to a realization.

“Am I the only one here who was never in the military?” I asked.

“I wasn’t in the military,” Tom said with a smile. “I was in the Air Force.”
