    Good finds on Netflix

    "Jadotville." My son tipped me off to it. Highly recommended. It's a military story, based on a Cold War episode during the troubles in the Congo in the early 1960s. A group of Irish peacekeepers are the stars. It is a great illustration of how screwed up things were during the Cold War, but also quite gripping and inspiring.

    It's a Netflix original movie, not a series. Well worth the 2 hours it takes to watch.

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”
