    Read this on the train today. Have had a hard time getting Michael Hensley out of my head since. It's by Tom Junod. Hensley, maybe the top sniper in the Army and a "natural killer" according to many of his men, ordered one of his guys to kill an Iraqi from close distance with a handgun shot to the back of the head. The story delves into whether it was murder or killing (story explains the difference). After reading Hensley's quotes, and those of people who know him, I've wondered what it was like interviewing him. Would have been fascinating, intense, and maybe a little frightening.

    There were several good stories in the issue, as usual, including a short one by Jones.
