I have an existential map, it has "you are here" written all over it. -Steven Wright

I think that in order to have a clear perspective of our importance, we should all own a dog to love and adore us and a cat to ignore us.

I have a student who, each day, leaves my classroom in the middle of my introductory lecture. I asked her about this today. She told me that I say the same thing three times differently. "I understand that this is necessary for most students, but it cuts into my worktime, so I go into the hall and start. That way I don't disturb your lesson and I get more done." She is in 6th grade and has already begun to embrace the power available to those who claim it. I am only slightly concerned that several Asian students have begun to follow her example.

"Wit is educated insolence." - Aristotle (384-322 B.C.)
