What's in the water? well, perhaps some left-over nerve gas from the movie The Rock. As you may have heard, there will be a pre-Alcatraz party at Chez Chuck, complete with shark fajitas (if I can find shark) and a viewing of The Rock, the movie where Nic Cage plays his typically-overacted and emotionally unstable screamer character and Sean Connery plays an English spy (with a Scottish accent). He also had the same accent playing English spy James Bond, Russian sub commander Marko Ramius in The Hunt for Red October and Irish Chicago Police Officer Malone in the Untouchables, yet nobody ever criticizes the accent because, well, he's Sean Connery.
