    FBI raids | an ass beating by Florida | still no conceptual idea

    Still tying to synthesize some rational idea to encompass this super charged site and program. I have a really vague idea about "the process of discovery" (yes, vague indeed) but I am having a hard time tying it into the specifics of the program. I feel like it meets the generic museum, interpretative/research center typology - but it is just not specific enough.

    It will come - it is just coming slower than I would prefer.

    That guy David Kernell had his apartment raided by the FBI a block from where I live on Saturday night. Apparently he and his roommates were having a party (goodbye party?) when they showed up about midnight. Crazy.

    I got a phone call from a local news station this morning asking me about David's involvement in SJU (Students for a Just University). I told them I didn't know him and didn't know anyone that did. Half that statement is true, the other half is a lie.

    I know what he did is illegal, but the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.

    The main characters of my design project:
    USS Undine and The Son of the South, Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest

      This year's crop of school bloggers is a very active group. Poor Michael in Houston had to deal with hurricanes and you have FBI raids down the street. Crazy.

      Great Story.....

      I'm not sure what to think of the "USS Undine and The Son of the South, Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest" photo and project.

      Great blog.....
