finds the world in an interesting state. We're at "war" for
one reason or another, and as a result, it's not enough to be merely
an artist or a writer or a musician. In a sense, these times call for
more than a film, a song or a poem, they call for the defense of our

state of hiatus.
On a personal
note, I may be purusing a documentary with some of my fellow students
