just do what the balustrade says

I've been leading my 12th-grade lit class through an investigation of photographer Richard Ross's Architecture of Authority, tying it into discussions about 1984 and, less ominously, urban planning and the recent political squabbles over height limits and density in Olympia's downtown. Examining the intersection has been quite illuminating. Today, for example, students scoped out areas of the school, sketching architectural highlights in preparation for tomorrow's synthesizing discussion.

If Ross ever wants to shoot "Neckwear of Authority," he can start right here.
