    I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy; we fought ourselves. And the enemy was in us. The war is over for me now, but it will always be there, the rest of my days. As I'm sure Al Terek will be, fighting with Hassan for what Rasoocalled possession of my soul. There are times since, I've felt like the child born of those two fathers. But, be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.

    I always thought Charlie Sheen was miscast in that movie.

    It was supposed to be Anthony Michael Hall. His schedule didn't free up and Stone got tired of waiting and cast Sheen

    Aging of the body is a horrible thing to see and feel. Aging of the mind brings clarity to issues you never even thought you cared about.
