"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."

"A lost child himself, he has every intention of staying that way."

It's funny how you can read something a dozen times and still manage to come across some new association.

The black kid with the dreads had earned his fifty. They'd found him crouching there like a gargoyle on the curb, his face somehow already as old as it would ever need to be, smoking Russian cigarettes from a red-and-white pack he kept tucked into the rolled-up sleeve of an old army shirt, three sizes too big. The van still had its wheels on and the tires were intact.

Boomzilla is likely smoking Kamel Reds. The light version of which being my choice of cigarette, a disgusting habit you can thank kitten for.

Yeah, Andy is right. Kamel Reds are turkish anyway. They were my smoke of choice back before I became a quitter.
