'Let's install metal detectors and give guns to teachers' Let's crack down on troublemakers, weeding out kids who fit the profile of a gunman. Let's buy bulletproof whiteboards for the students to scurry behind, or train kids to throw erasers or cans of soup at an attacker.'

A. R. Rahman

Everything is right now, right here, in the reader's grasp and mind's eye. The writer has twenty to thirty pages to entice, seduce, enter, and alter the reader.
China's cinema has been rising for some time; it has more exposure, so my chances of becoming internationally known are better. But the first thing I have to do is learn English. If I can grasp the language, then perhaps I can think about the U.S.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
