I'm going to tell a funny on my son.
A couple weeks back he had to watch a movie based on an historical event for a class and then write a paper about it. He watched The Alamo, John Wayne version.
The instructor hasn't given the papers back yet, but someone asked about them this morning in class and he said although he hadn't finished grading them all (it's the last week of class), so far they were pretty good.
But there was one paper, he said, that he wasn't sure whether he should give an F to or an A-plus.
Seems the Bowie the writer of this paper had placed at the Alamo was David, not Jim.
I've been recasting the movie in my mind all afternoon. The stars look very different.
