Identifying Opportunities to Improve Revenues and Ridership Levels at Wmata

Oedipus' discovery causes him to turn away from Thebes; Deckard's discovery compels him to leave los angeles and take Rachael (another possible allusion to the Ishmaelian ending of the film -- for at the end of Moby-Dick, the Rachael appears looking for her lost children). Thus, Blade Runner has a distinct literary quality that runs through it as well: its Blatty is in many ways like the angry Ahab of Melville's classic work of American literature -- angrily lashing out at God, Fate, Nature and vowing to hunt down the whale. Indeed, both Blatty and Ahab shed… Continue Reading...

I do agree with the general sentiment that jail should "feel" like punishment when it comes to restriction of freedom, activities and so forth.
