Somehow I finished the latest, more cohesive draft of my specialization synthesis. My, my. In celebration, we went to the movies to see The Departed. It was very good. Of course, for me, it's hard not to like a film Leonardo Dicaprio is in. But that's just me. I liked The Departed because I wasn't sure there was really a good guy or a bad guy. And I guess with cop dramas it isn't exactly clear cut. More like real life. Less like Ph.D programs; it seems like in grad school there's a good guy and a bad guy. Always.
