Lord of the Sleepless Nights

I managed to read every one of Clancy's novels (but not the 'franchised' crap.)

That guy cost me at least 4 weeks of sleepless nights.  The books were a rollicking good time, full of remarkable factoids about US military and intel capabilities which were mind-boggling 30 years ago.

Clancy, by the way, was a firm believer in American Exceptionalism; he used Jack Ryan as the prototype.

"There is no such thing as co-incidence."

In paradisum deducant te angeli....
