"Switching topics: one of my favorite parts of the book is when you realize
that half of Lukin's notes have disappeared from the notebook of
truth. ah, academia. <stares ruefully at the pile of class notes in
front of her> I really wish I had one of those."
lol! Be careful what you wish for! I can recall a few professors who would
have become very upset if I had told them straight and brutal what I
thought, instead of insinuating what I thought delicately into passages that
flattered, by allusion and homage to their lines of reasoning, the prof's
greatness. Or when we would unwittingly bring the prof's attention to a
fallacy in their reasoning - often a touchy moment. ;)
Call me a cynic, but I was going in to debt to be there and my scholarship
was based on my grades! Still, I agree with you - wouldn't it be handy to
have around to help one sort through everything?
I'm glad to be back reading everyone again - what was I thinking to let it
slide so long? I need a notebook of truth to determine what the really
important things are in life.
