Time Until Next Mac Lab Saturday School
Make the World a Better Place
The invisible tensive straws that can save us are those of individual human integrities—in daring to steer the individual’s course only by truth, strange as the realized truth may often seem—wherever and whenever the truths are evidenced to the individual—wherever they may lead, unfamiliar as the way may be.

Grades: Speak with me before the 12 week progress report if you believe your grade should be raised. (But don’t wait until next Friday because there will probably be a line procrastinators wanting to speak with me at the last minute.) Remember, the only grade that matters (long term) is the semester grade. Every one of you is capable of earning an A by then. I’m rooting for you to give it your all.
