Link to soothe the savage(ly grading) beast:
Abandoned piano + random people = moving moments. Not sure why but this made me cry.
Intrepid interviewer + resistant writer = awkward interview. Just try looking away from this slow-motion train wreck, even if you don't need any more reasons to dislike V.S. Naipaul (here).
Beowulf = Jesus? Fact-checking student essays at Fie Upon this Quiet Life (here).
Sunshine + clear skies = boring weather--in Ohio. But on Mars, the weather outside is frightful! Look here for some lovely dry-ice snow and other amazing extraterrestrial weather patterns.
Why - wh = y. Why? Read a student e-mail message I'm glad I didn't receive--but there's still time! I still have three sets of final exams to grade!
