Frank Scozzari’s comment on “Too Old for War”—Traveling once in Kenya I stayed a couple nights in a Masai village. The villagers were very hospitable, sang songs, and shared stories. We were introduced to their customs, food, and their “tools of life,” among them, their weapons. One story was told about an aging tribal king, from which came the inspiration for “Too Old for War.”
