Odd Combination

Seen forgotten (or temporarily walked-away-from?) at Menlo Park CalTrain:

I'm curious what sort of person reads gritty detective novels, thoughtful books about the Vietnam war

"They carried all the emotional baggage of men who might die. Grief, terror, love, longing--these were intangibles, but the intangibles had their own mass and specific gravity, they had tangible weight. They carried shameful memories. They carried the common secret of cowardice.... Men killed, and died, because they were embarrassed not to."
(I'm lifting this from the Amazon review page)... and drinks Strawberry Quick!
