hi elizabeth! the first thing i want you to know is that the first sentence of your post is totally great. the second thing is, i think you actually are reflecting the opinions of the united states military academy.(just kidding!)if you have a moment, maybe take a look at the music video i posted yesterday from the aircraft carrier. it looks like the people in the video are really good friends and having a lot of fun, which seems unusual and refreshing in a military environment. my brother in law was on submarines for six years and although he liked it he didn't have a lot of fun. anyway, i think you have a great opportunity as an english prof at west point. i hope they give you a relatively free hand. thanks for your ideas on the films and i hope you will write more. i share your respect for david thompson. -- mitch sisskind
