By request, here’s a shot from one of The Citadel photographers of the Halloween festivities at Fourth Battalion here on campus. It’s a little known fact, proved here, that knights actually wear Reeboks (and hold their mommies’ hands).

Isn’t he precious? And the Hobbit, too, right?

I’m thinking that this sort of behavior — noting especially the real working battle-axe I have at my right hip and am fingering as I look toward the camera — might have something to do with why some of my cadets fear me. Maybe. Possibly.

  1. Wow. You look genuinely threatening.

  2. Learn something new every day; here I thought knights wore Adidas!

  3. Glad I could help out, Kate!

    And you know, Mary, that I’m really a sweetheart. It just looks like I’m not.
