Upon entering the Letitia Pate Evans
Dining Hall, I was immediately aware of the pleasant atmosphere. The
meals are served in a quaint cafeteria style reminiscent of school days.
As I approached the entrance to the serving line, I became aware of
mouth-watering aromas. When I walked through the door I discovered I
had a wide variety to choose from. There was the obligatory salad bar
and, of course, a cereal bar. The selection changes from day to day.
The day I went, they served lemon pepper
chicken, carrot-mushroom loaf, red beans, rice, Greek spinach pie, and
featured lentil soup as the soup of the day. The lemon pepper chicken
had just the right amount of tang and was delightfully juicy. The carrot-mushroom
loaf has some undefinable quality that made me want more. Of course,
I can't forget the simple yet filling red beans and rice. The Greek
spinach pie had a good flavor without being overpowering.
The lentil soup was especially tasty,
with just the mix of seasonings to balance the flavor of the lentils.
For desert I had fresh cookies and ice cream. I was very happy with
the reasonable prices. I had a most enjoyable experience and would highly
recommend the Letitia Pate Evans Dining Hall.

I cannot believe I went to see the Star
Wars Trilogy. After seeing it for the first time on the big screen,
I want my money back. I don't see what all the hype was about. I sat
through Star Wars praying someone would come along and shoot
me. Star Wars was followed by The Empire Strikes Back
three weeks later. How about the Patron Strikes Back? I fell asleep
halfway through the movie. It took a lot of convincing -- and someone
promising to pay for the ticket -- for me to finish off the series.
I finally went to see Return of the Jedi earlier this week with
a group of friends who were determined to show me that this series was
the best. After seeing Return of the Jedi, I had to ask, "Why
did we have to return to see this movie? I didn't want to come in the
There are several reasons why I would
never make my worst enemy see these movies. The first was the acting.
It was lousy and I could have sworn I heard several people feeding the
actors their lines. The special effects were dull, inconsistent, and
childish. It would have been more believable to use puppets. The movie
lacked a plot of any kind; I have seen better writing from two-year-olds.
Also, the storyline was not believable. Who will believe that there
is some all-powerful "Force" that controls my actions? Give me a break.
There were some additional petty problems I could have overlooked if
there had been a plot. Hans Solo had more hair on his chest than Luke
Skywalker had on his head.
For those of you that wish to ignore
my warning, may the Force be with you! There is also a disgusting plot
twist (if that is possible in a movie with no plot): Luke and Leia are
twins. They find out in the last movie, after having spent the first
two movies kissing and hugging and pawing each other. Absolutely unacceptable.
Overall, I give these movies two thumbs down.
