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




It is perhaps a sign that I have been in graduate school for a year or so too long that today, when a friend was telling me about one of her students (in her TA class) who is getting an F for the entire semester from the professor because said student cheated on a quiz (which counts for only a tiny percentage of the overall grade) I said, "GOOD! They deserve it! Nobody enforces these things anymore!"

My inclination to temper justice with mercy is inversely correlated to the length of time I've been here.

One class down and one to go...
