Good afternoon, 103ers. Below is a copy of the comment Alex Platt sent at 7:59 AM this morning. Read the comment carefully - it's pithy and suggestive rather than explanatory (typical Alex, I think) - but if you take time to comprehend it you will be able to discover a general criticism of the film we watched last night. So read it and work out in your mind what Alex's position on the film is.
If you agree - more or less, on the whole - with Alex's position, sit on the side of the room nearest the windows.
If you disagree - more or less, on the whole - with Alex's position, sit on the side of the room nearest the door - across from the windows.
If you don't know, don't care, prefer not to take a position one way or the other, side along the back wall, between the windows and door walls.
As always in 103, be prepared to explain and defend your position. Anticipate counterarguments to the positions of others.

So, we're all a bunch of squabs looking over our shoulders for the hawks that live on top of the hotel, with the occasional longshoreman to throw us a handfull of feed? Is that why ideally "everybody should care about everybody," cause we're all in the same pile of sh+t?
