Out of the Blue

Happy Summer! Unless of course, you live below the equator, in which case, happy winter!

In addition to the solstice, today is also the day Battlefield 2 should be first appearing on store shelves, I'm looking forward to some modern warfare action. If the demo has proven anything to me, though, it's that I'm be best suited to the role of a grunt. I can sort of be trusted to operate a tank, but even that is pushing it towards the Peter Principle... Among all those with ambitions to command or be a hot-shot flyboy, I'll be the guy asking what my orders are.
