I likely won't be posting a lot until Rita is gone. I have family right in the path on the Gulf coast, and all over Texas --- and I'm on my last nerve about it.

So until this is all over and we know everyone is (or isn't) okay, i just can't muster up the concentration necessary to write posts.

I'm back (kind of)

I apologize for my absence, but I've just been through a heck of a couple of weeks with this year's batch of students.

Good gawd, where do these people come from?

I've had to literally fight them tooth and nail, and not just the young ones. Some of the older ones have been running real trips on me, bad enough that today, I let one of them have it in class. Actually, two of them. I had to do the same thing Monday.

It's really really exhausting, but hopefully, this time, I knocked some sense into them.

Gawd, if anyone doubts we're falling to Third World status, come spend a few hours with my students. Scary.
