Not So Speedy Rant
It's bad enough, dealing with the flood of emails from students who "can't make it to class because it's Thanksgiving! Tomorrow!" And they must travel over the river and through the woods to some elderly relative's house, so they had to leave yesterday. Will they miss anything? Yes. You will miss something. The entire class that I am teaching because our campus is not closed today. But WTF? There are tea partying professors in several departments across campus who have cancelled classes for the day. Not all of them travel. A couple said "what's the point? The students don't want to be here, so I'll stay home and bake pies." How stupid am I? I'll be baking until midnight.
