the embarrassment that was Simon Hunt

for all those years.

I got sent to New York and was offered

the cushiest job in the business:

Chief cameraman for Franklin Harris,

the network anchorman.

I suddenly had what

everyone else wanted:

World capitals,

state dinners,

first-class jets.

And I took advantage

of every gift bag they gave me.

Simon had it harder.

- Much harder.

- Simon Hunt here in Northern Gaza.

He stumbled through

a half dozen cable news jobs,

one more demeaning than the next...

What the f*ck are you doing?

...which usually ended with him quitting

or getting fired for insubordination.

Got great tape!

Great, great tape!

Finally he hit the bottom rung

of a journalist's career:

Showing up at a war

on nobody's dime but his own.


I'll take five hundred.

A world exclusive.

Don't you owe me

It's a shitty life.

Soon after that, I stopped hearing

from Simon altogether.

And then he dropped

completely off the radar.

There were rumors of spottings

in certain war zones

you wouldn't even want to fly over.

Stories like that.

And then slowly...

the stories stopped.

As for me?

Did I miss the action?

Did I want to go back

to the carnage and craziness?

The adrenaline and nonstop erection

that comes from fear and death and war?

Absolutely not.

And that was the lie I lived with.

- Watch the land mine.

- What?

Okay, that's not funny.

No, I just read there's

supposed to still be

over 500,000 un-detonated land mines

in this country.

You know, the last time I was here,

there was a sniper positioned right there

taking potshots at my ass.

Five-year anniversary. It's a good story.

Duck, you should talk

to some of your old contacts

and work with Benjamin.

I want to do something

on the reconciliation.

You know, Muslim and Serb widow
