"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



Several of my students want to write their papers on cocaine.

I'm trying to figure out what this means.

What course is this? Contemporary U.S. Social Problems? Bad Habits of Politicians? Other Wars America is Losing? :-)

Seems to me that would be rather difficult. How do you keep the cocaine from blowing away? They could get the same challenge by writing on talcum powder without the legal complications.

The assignment is to write about a current event and how it relates to something we cover in an intro-level class.

Days spent on drug policy: 0
Days spent trying to figure out the fascination with drug policy: 2
Students also wanting to write about marijuana legalization: 1

Tauratinzwe- ha!
