5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of Racist, Imperialist Fun!, December 17, 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought this for my son and he spent countless, blissful hours simulating massacres of weddings, funerals, and other family gatherings of brown skinned foreigners! He even realized that if he circled the drone back around on the first responders, his effective kill rate soared! Neat-o!

Educationally, this toy can't be beat - inculcating a predilection for indiscriminate, imperialist violence against non-combatants from oppressed and marginalized communities is precisely in accordance with truly "American values!"

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Hurts So Good, November 3, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It really hurts to be human sometimes. We terrorize each other, and ourselves, and then have these moments of odd grace when we stop, or fix it, or wonder why we ever did it in the first place.
Leave it to Roberge to paint those moments in such exacting detail that you are exposed, implicated, and also held in a sort of loving solidarity with the rest of the screw-ups as you move through this gorgeously poignant collection. The dialog is right. The descriptions are right. The horror and pain and beauty are completely right. Someone else can fluff up their stories with flights of fancy that don't make you remember what blood feels like. Someone else can not tell the truth. I don't read those people. I couldn't really, not after this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Settle In and Listen Up, March 26, 2010
This review is from: Ten Walks/Two Talks (Paperback)
Idiosyncratic descriptions. Real conversations. Men in the city trying to understand. This is like a Goddard film on paper. Gorgeous and somehow melancholy--but not maudlin. For New York, which has been overrepresented, these representations are fresh and stinky, bright and clouded, and so they feel true, true, true.
