Back to school

I am back from Naples and that means I am back to the books and working on homework. I have just a bit of Ethics to accomplish by 13.30 tomorrow. I just finished watching Shattered Glass which I rented when I got back. Great movie based on a true story. The film tells the true story of fraudulent Washington, D.C. journalist Stephen Glass, who rose to meteoric heights as a young writer in his 20s, becoming a staff writer at “The New Republic” for three years (1995-1998), where 27 of his 41 published stories were either partially or completely made up. Looking for a short cut to fame, Glass concocted sources, quotes and even entire stories, but his deception did not go unnoticed forever, and eventually, his world came crumbling down. Great movie so check it out if you get a chance.
