Chances are, the greeting, "It's Lt. Dan!" was heard more than a few times on the Naval Academy grounds this week. Actor Gary Sinise, Oscar-nominated for playing the irascible Lt. Dan in "Forrest Gump" and -- more pertintently here -- a steadfast supporter of the U.S. armed forces, paid a visit to the U.S. Naval Academy Thursday. While in Annapolis, Sinise toured the academy grounds and met with academy leadership, including the superintendent, Vice Admiral Michael H. Miller, and Commandant of Midshipmen Captain William Byrne, said USNA spokeswoman Judy Campbell.

Only this time make it understandable. It's time they stopped trying and gave up. Don't they realize that half the fun of Kubrick's brilliantly obtuse film was debating its meaning with your friends?

The book is back.By that I mean, if you look quick and try not to make too much of it, you can see up there on the screen something rare and unprecedented in the last few years: movie versions of three classic American literary texts, all of which, moreover, appear under their own names and are not in any way bowdlerized by a marketing department or savaged and trashed by their makers. The three are "Last of the Mohicans," from the classic by James Fenimore Cooper; Gary Sinise's respectful and sturdy version of Steinbeck's classic, "Of Mice and Men"; and, finally, Robert Redford's equally respectful version of Norman Maclean's "A River Runs Through It."
