Who is “we”?

by McQ | October 14, 2007 1:49 pm

I‘m as big a fan of “A Band of Brothers” as the next guy. I thought it was fabulous. And I don’t say that about many “war movies”. And I’m as pleased as I can be that two of that band, William Guarnere and Edward Heffron, both in their 80s, have written a book about their experiences, entitled “Brothers in Battle: Best of Friends,” recently published by the Berkley Publishing Group. I’ll probably buy it and look forward to reading it.

And I even thought the article[1] about them and their book was pretty darn good – except for one line. This one:

And the book comes at just the right time, says Berkley’s Natalee Rosenstein. “It’s a period of time when we’re all looking for real heroes,” she said.

Oh really?
