The Hurt Locker

Pencil me “somewhat pleased” that The Hurt Locker won best picture last night.  I saw it, and thought it was a good movie, but I find myself agreeing with Jules Crittenden’s critique of it.  I don’t think I saw any of the other nominees.

Of course, now I have a particular reason to think about the hurt locker.  My son travels to San Antonio today where he will spend the night, take an aptitude test and get a physical to assess his suitability for infantry duty in the United States Army.  He says he’s most interested in being a combat engineer.  And what do they do?  Stuff like this (although this particular duty is volunteer only.)

Prayers, please.  This, I hope, will be a great thing for him, but first he has to pass the physical.
