Catching up on your writing. Have you made a decision? Sounds like allot to consider and almost seems like a roll the dice gamble in choosing the best path for yourself and your future. The rules always seem to change and the lines redrawn in the sand. Is that documentary on HBO?
Take care,

I feel docs are the only reliable window into the war, despite the media with their foreign correspondents, embedded reporters.

I felt like I was watching "Survivor: Iraq War Edition." it was just for ratings, the best coverage I got was from NPR, I never thought I'd find myself listening to the radio so much, but it's disturbing when you have all these cable news networks and not a single one really having objective coverage of the war. I invested in buying 16-documentaries at like $275, all current about the war; each carrying their own perspectives, trying to sway from the politics of the war, and just focus on the people and issues caught up in it: soldiers & civilians became my primary concern, as they didn't really seem that important since they weren't really mentioned by either party or newspeople.
