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


tales from the classroom

In my intro class earlier this afternoon, we had a discussion about the gender gap in political opinion. "Why," I had asked, "do women and men tend to vote differently?"

"Because women do what Oprah tells them to do," replied a student who has never answered a question before.

Thing is, there's some evidence that he isn't far off.
