I know what you’re thinking, but no, she doesn’t say I’m psychotic – at least not out loud. And this piece is a perfect example of one of those interesting and ongoing synchronicities. You see, the second I started ruminating about my ongoing love affair with Norm Koger’s, The Operational Art of War series, not only did the surprise 3.4.1.9 TOAW III update come out, but Matrix announced an upcoming TOAW IV sequel.
