I'm Ba-aack!

Sorry to go three weeks without an update to this blog, but law school finals tend to keep one busy. Yeah, I finished on Friday, but after five exams in two weeks I needed a few days of doing nothing.

I actually caught a movie in the theater for the first time since January. I saw Thank You For Smoking, a pretty funny satire about a guy who's the spokesman for Big Tobacco.

One thing I noticed that kind of bothered me: the movie's about the cigarette industry, but nowhere in the film does it depict people lighting up. In fact, the protagonist is supposed to be a smoker, but I couldn't even tell until the almost end of the movie. Considering that the movie makes a big statement about personal choice, it's kind of depressing that Thank You For Smoking bends to calls for self-censorship when it comes to showing smoking on screen.

Anyway, it's great to be back!

We have missed your observations on the world. Keep it coming, those darn books aren't going anywhere.
