"My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it is, above all, to make you see." -- Joseph Conrad (1897)
There was big controversy and some lawsuits up here in Seattle about a year ago concerning recruiters on HS campuses. I do not believe they should be allowed on campuses HS or downward. All the recruitment adds I've seen are pretty slick and appeal to the "tell your parents you're a man now and going and even if they don't like it now, they'll have more respect for you." and of course all the video game aspects by showing how you'll be flying an apache helicopter etc.
Back in 1983 we had an Army rock band come to play- we actually got out of class for it.I was in the woods behind the scholl getting high, but I heard the band sucked.
"scholl getting high"...sheesh.
I remember those bands... what a joke.Have you two seen the documentary The Ground Truth yet?
nope haven't seen it yet but i have it in my blockbuster queue heh. along with a bunch of other docs you've mentioned in your blog - corporation, inconvenient truth...
