Totally left field here for the Soldier blog- a wonderful little video I came across on ABC News 24 while writing my thesis. When you think about it in context of comic books or pop culture entertainment, the implications here explain a lot about the creative process, and the audience participation and investment in stories and character (such as empathy). All academia should be presented in this manner- livens up dry theory, that's for sure. Enjoy :D
