I wasn't going to post anything today because of the picnic that's not a picnic after all, but I have a few minutes, and I'm going to share the scariest thing I've heard all semester (well, the scariest thing that doesn't come out of anyone in national politics. Those things are too scary for even ME to repeat!)
From a student: "When I try to focus, I can't think."
Said with a smile, all happiness. This student wants to be a nurse.
