UNDERWAY -- I am on the tail end of a mailgram generated by four (soon to become six) American students who are backpacking across England, France, Switzerland, and Italy. I've picked up some things between the lines of their journey that will become proficiencies I drill into my first year Media Writing students. Those unsuspecting Irish college students will have the American backpackers to blame.
