Everyday Heros

I think Med-evac Pilots are heroic. They fly helicopters evacuating sick or wounded people from far away areas.  Med-evac pilots fly amywhere from War zones to cities like huntsville. They even fly in places where natural disasters have destroyed all conventional airstrips and the only thing that can get people out are helicopters.

Mystery Book Talk Pt3

I havent really read this book in a long time but i did read the deffendants side of the murder story. It basicly contradics everything the prosecuter said. Thats really the only twist thats happened so far. And although the book seems boring, trials that take five or six chapters and very lond dialouges its actually quite interesting and descriptive. All in all this is a great book. John Grisham has done an excellent job of making this book interesting for young adults.
