Thanks To the Commenters

It's more fun to crank this stuff out when people write back to disagree with you. My most frequent commenter has been my ol' pal Skot; and I want to welcome "Madeline's Dad", a man who takes his identity from his very fatherhood. See him as WAMK under a few recent evolution-based threads.

Less frequent, but memorable commenters have included a guy from Reason Magazine Online who wrote to discuss the orgins of "jump the shark"; a kid who ridiculed me for being all emo, and a Film professor who was pleased that I noticed the deeper undercurrents of STARSHIP TROOPERS. I love you all, except the emo kid, whom I will kill if we ever meet.

I love "Starship Troopers". It's one of those movies (like "Tommy Boy" and "Roadhouse",) that once I come across 'em surfing, the clicker stops.

I get embarrassed when my wife walks in on me watching "Roadhouse" tho. It's such a good "bad" movie. I have a hard time explaining to her why I like it.

"Troopers" is a whole different animal. Teens fighting giant, angry, pus-filled bugs. "Service means Citizenship". Guys getting their arms and legs ripped off by big "ants". Good stuff.
