You can't close the the eyes of dead people. A medic explained the mechanics of that to me in Beirut. I still had to try that with my mother when she died in hospice in 2014. They open right back up. I pulled the covers over her after taking pics.

Yeah, I know that's gruesome. I needed to document the event. My former girlfriend Marla was with me.

There's no 'dustoff' for McMurphy at Hospital City, probably just a meat wagon to the county morgue or to whatever mortuary.

We don't talk much in the little time we're together.

TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy…
but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”

I don't know/remember what happened to the casualties from Beirut '83. Maybe they went to Israel or something. I don't remember.

That sounded like Henry Fonda narrating that film.
