Er, um, hmm

I just got done watching the final episode of Vietnam: A Television History, the 13-part documentary series PBS aired in 1983. I watched the whole series over the last couple of weeks. (Thank you, Madison Public Library.)

I had this idea--which occured to me after I saw the recent Weather Underground documentary--that watching this series would help me understand the war a little better, and I guess I do. But I still have trouble keeping it all straight and mostly am left with the image to which the filmmakers return again and again: weeping Vietnamese people.
