The cat has gnawed its way out of the burlap sack.

The cat is out of the bag, people!
I know I was able to hide it for a long time and I know a lot of people, including my closest peers, are going to be shocked (shocked!) about this little nugget of information that my academic director uncovered on Thursday. a cynic. I know some of you are devastated by this news, and frankly, I am too. I'm trying to cope with it and I hope all of you will help me through these dark and troubling times.
Moving on.
Another idea that had popped into my head was not only the idea of recorded interviews, but also the idea recording roundtable discussions with the rest of the NOLA team, both in state and possibly beforehand. The purpose of this would be to discuss the following topics:
1. What we had all been shooting that day.
2. The successes of the day.
3. The failures of the day.
4. New things we had learned.
5. Our general reactions of what we had experienced that day.
Of course, this would be open to everybody that wants to participate, provided the table is large enough. I personally believe that interviewing ourselves will be just as valuable as interviewing others. This will also document our changing opinions and ideas about what we are experiencing down there. If anybody is interested, I'd absolutely love to hear your input.

I think this is a great idea...but we are still short your reflections on the American Experience viewing, and the assigned topic, and 10 storied sub-ideas. Don't get too far behind.
