I really enjoyed the way that Sandlin structured this piece. As we read more and more of these stories I begin to question whether writers structure choices are on purpose, but for this one I think he had a definite plan of where the story was going to go and I like that. Also I enjoyed how the ending did bring the reader back to the begining vaguely with the reference to his childhood play times but didn't over do it with a bunch of fuzzy hoopla.

While reading this I did have one question that kept popping into my head. How does he know all this stuff? He does make reference to some articles and radio programs, but all the details he uses seem unreal!
