Oh great, now I'm *clueless* and dispirited.
One of my classes was just soooo depressing - I asked them to write about
their favourite book as an introduction, and at least 5 of them wrote about
magazines, and motoring magazines at that. And a couple more wrote about
how they don't read. These are people I have to teach poetry to.
Hmmm. Perhaps Jacob, your profs were so pleased at having a student with a
glimmer of intelligence, that they gave you pity/gratitude marks.
