Comment (1)

During class you asked if anyone wanted to have their blog singled out and commented. I would like to have people read:
http://theyletyougraduate.blogspot.com/2011/02/right-to-remain-silent.html
and
http://scienceinhollywoodfactsanderrors.blogspot.com/2011/02/movie-of-week.html
and to watch this movie and comment on the two blogs. I think the film is a good representation of what we are discussing in class and I think it could pose some very good discussion that will lead the rest of the class to show their personal frame choice.
