You know what, I'm sort of relieved this ended up being 3 1/2 stars for you -- based on your early comments, I thought, "oh no, this is going to be lucky if it even ends up 2 1/2 stars"! :)

As for Koff's "complaining" about inefficiencies and lacking equipment, except for one or two instances I actually thought she was very restrained. I have no doubt that she could have complained about a *lot* more things (and in much greater detail) -- she did include the bare minimum that exemplifies the difficulties that this sort of work presents just so as to give the reader an idea of the general framework, and by and large I was thankful she kept it to that level. There were one or two instances where I thought "boy, this must really have rankled on a personal level" and where I wished she'd have spared us the details, but barring these exceptions I thought she found the right balance. (You should have heard me after some of the things I experienced in Georgia.) -- Perceptions differ, though, of course, and they are *always* subjective!
