One Good Question for A Few Good Men
Just relaxing tonight, watching a re-run of one of my favorite films, "A Few Good Men," and I have a question, and it is burning a hole in my brain, itching to be answered. The question is not whether the common citizen understands military jurisprudence with all it's formalities, or whether or not relations with Cuba are as strained as they were at the time of this story. My question is furthermore and heretofore also not what happens when a talented young man tries to live up to the legend his dead father became when he was alive, as Tom Cruise's character struggles with as he tries to find justice for the two enlisted men accused of murder and "Code Red-ing" a fellow enlisted man.
My question is this: what the heck hairstyle did Demi Moore have, exactly, in this film? It looks like a "DA," a term popuar in the 1950's (and way before my time, by the way) that stood for, well, "duck's ass." Is it a DA that she's sporting, or a 40's-style chignon, or what??? I need to know, now!
This blog is dismissed, and will re-convene here tomorrow.
