maybe that's just me.
Mostly likely.
Of all the people I know (of), Mr. King is probably the last person I would describe as lazy, in any regard. The nice thing about books and TV, no one forces you to partake. Well, unless you're in school, then they make you read books, but rarely are they King's work.
Welcome though. Hope you can find other books to read. :)

My daughter graduated from a private, Lutheran K-12 school. She was in AP classes, too. In her English classes, SK showed up quite a bit on the approved book lists. They were the shorter books, but they were still there. She did end up reading Carrie, the Shining, and Salem's Lot. She refused to read Cujo. She's like me, she felt too sorry for the dog and would have ended up totally pissed at Cuje's owners. (Only I have read it, and own it, many times...still cry at the end and am STILL pissed at the Cambers. Which is weird, I know, because they're not even real.)

Mr. King (I know you read these entries),
I loved this story, and most stories I read have to measure up to my favorites, the Stand and the Dark Tower series. Thelse are such a minor points that I kinda hate to be the whiner that brings the small flaws to your attention. Here goes...

Please let Russ Dorr know that Glocks simply don't have a safety that you can flick with your thumb. They don't really have a safety that people think of with traditional pistols. There is a notch on the trigger that gets pulled when you 'wilfully' pull the trigger, and that's it. When you pull a Glock's trigger, it goes bang. That's why they make great nightstand guns. No fussing, just aim and shoot.

Number 2, there is no Glock.22. There is a very popular Glock 22 which is a .40 caliber pistol with a 15 round magazine, and being bigger than a 9mm, that will do some major damage. There is no Glock in .22 caliber, and even if there was, the chances of that caliber from a handgun killing someone quickly is very small.

As I mentioned, these are super minor and hardly worth mentioning, but I started reading your work as a scrawny kid in Dallas in the 1970's, and well we know our guns in Texas.

With love,
Klugey1
