Mostly non-entry.

I recently reread (re-listened?) to Ender's game, a favorite little novel of mine. I won't bore most of you with the rehash, since you're probably all aware of why this novel is so damn good. But I was struck by something 'new' to me while listening to it at work. The part where Ender is vacationing at the lake because his handlers want him to fall in love with the 'earth' to give him some reason to fight for it? How he's enjoying fishing and rafting, etc....

Reminded me an awful lot of our Jack O'Neil from Stargate. And I thought the parallel worth noting. I also thought the parallel of that neither man is called by their proper name. ;)
