Toffle, it was kind of you to label the door to your classroom. If I were in that class, I have a feeling I would have been looking for it immediately after receiving that assignment.
I accept the compliment...
The window, on the other hand (labeled appropriately, "window") offered only the illusion of freedom. It looked out on a brick wall, but with some effort, the students could view something of the world not apparent in a front-on perspective. (They had to write papers on that, too ) They also had to re-write Macbeth as a Beothuk tribal legend. I suspect I am solely responsible for the despair of hundreds of impressionable teenagers.

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
I had never heard of Wendell Berry either until this program.
But unlike you, I thoroughly enjoy listening to NPR. I have learned so very many things in so many different subjects that it has significantly broadened my horizons. It seems that daily I tell my girlfriend about something I heard on NPR that day. To each his own.
