[Comments] (3) One More Time, With Feeling: One more class for my Academic Development students before they take their writing proficiency. I hope they make it! There are three of them that I don't have high hopes for.

The English students take their test after Thanksgiving. You ought to see all the late work that is coming in. People tell me I shouldn't take late work, but I figure, if they pass their test, I don't want to play a game with them having to repeat the class (some sadists do...), and if they fail the test, the work is to no avail anyhow. Fail the test, fail the class.

Here is a bummer: Veterans Day is a holiday, but it's on Friday this year. I don't teach any classes on Fridays.

Bummer about your holiday. Do I even get that day off?

It's a Federal holiday.

Yeah, we don't get it off.
