    Hi Budd & Tina,

    It bounced again, so I pasted in below.

    Dear Budd,

    I finally got my head above water for a few minutes (gasp!). We are doing an exam Wednesday night, so you need not come in. The following week I’m doing “Rocky” & Lincoln on “Wrestling” as an introduction to what the text calls “ideological criticism.”

    How is the Sinister Cinema series going?
