Alice’s Restuarant

“They had 27, 8×10 color glossy pictures with the circles and arrows with a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us.” This quote i really liked because it goes to show how things can get blown out of proportion so easily. A simple littering violation treated like the crime of the century. Which is how it was percieved by the Sargent in the story, and what led Arlo to say “I’m sittin’ here on the group W bench because you want to know if I’m moral enough to join the army, burn women, kids, houses and villages after being a litterbug.” I believe this to be his thesis statement especially because of the irony, that if you litter, you’re not moral enough to kill.

Food for thought


This time dad decided to take off the training wheels..

One of the hardest things i think a parent has to do is teach their childeren that not everything is “given” to them. I believe this statement reflects that idea.

I think what the writer is trying to relay as his thesis is that making the right choices in life will help him to achieve the goals he sets for himself
