In the driver’s seat of Colbert’s Humvee, Person was singing.

“One, two, three, four, what the fuck are we fighting for?”

“You have to answer that for yourself,” I said as I crouched against the fender, scanning with my binoculars.

“Well, sir,” Person said, turning in the seat to face me, oblivious to the fight all around him, “I guess I’m fighting for cheap gas and a world without ragheads blowing up our fucking buildings.”

“Good to know you’re such an idealist.”

“That world sounds pretty ideal to me right about now.”

People were taking pictures of us from across the table just so they could show us how similar we acted.
