so i spent my second full day of spring break at the library. oh yes. and i began organizing my project on notecards - which only proves that i think very well visually when it's sitting in front of me. not when i have to take those stupid SAT test portions where you look at the layout of flat cube and then have to guess how the sides will all fit together. no good. but i digress, the notecards are currently sticky-tacked up to one of my closet doors. empty closet doors come in handy sometimes. and i spent a good half hour or so organizing and reorganizing. i think i have a pretty good format. not that i don't doubt it'll be modified as the weeks go by, but i think it's a reall strong starting point. but before i start going into that, i need to read three more selections, and research a bit on the weather underground.
so here's what i know so far about the weather underground: they were around in the 60's and 70's for a little while, and blew up some government buildings and smashed some police cars, etc. but never killed/hurt a person (they were all about bombing in the middle of the night). there was a tragic accident though where three of the bomb-makers were killed because some stuff got mixed together that wasn't supposed to. or the fuse got lit. at any rate, their members were clearly wanted by the fbi, but managed to evade capture for like ten or fifteen years. there are still some members in jail, or just recently out of jail? one of the other things they did was take a paying job ($25,000!) to break an LSD distributor out of prison. and so they did. i read somewhere they had some all-women cells, but that was only in one place, and i haven't found any other confirmation of that. but if i can, that would be cool.
my fbi / patriot act file just got a little fatter (i'm presuming there was one to begin with....thanks to the multiple times i've been ushered into the "super security check" at airports though that hasn't happened in awhile. watch, it'll start again).
so in doing this whole mapping thing with the notecards, i finally understand the theoretical approaches statement and how i should've organized it in the first place. ta da! so that's what i'm (not) working on now while i write this. okay, next entry, i will lay out the organization. because sneak peeks are dandy.Posted by speck025 at March 13, 2005 12:19 AM
