i saw "Lords of Discipline" tonite on DVD, the movie by Pat Conroy. After i got a letter from Pat Conroy suggesting that i go to citadel (sure i'm not unique in this!) i had to see this movie. so tonite i did. it's an awesome movie. Pat Conroy, who went to the Citadel, supposedly based "The Institute" in the movie on both Citadel and VMI. very cool. anyways, i'm recommending this movie. (although i have to admit at one point in the movie, i got so mad at what was happening in the movie that i punched the screen- LOL!) EDIT: oh, and the main character in Lords of Discipline was played by the smae actor as was in this other old movie, An Officer and a Gentleman.
