1/3 of the school year is over! Yahoo and yippee. More importantly, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means a few more days off in a row. And in that vein, here's my thing to be thankful for today: my end-of-trimester comments are finished. All 75 of them.
In other news:
- from the NYT, an article on the fact that early decision applications are actually up this year at lots of different institutions despite the fact that the economy is down
-from the NYT, an article on the fact that California plans to cut enrollment at its state university system by 10,000 students because of the economic downturn (ouch for low income kids)
- from the NYT an article on how a student from Dartmouth won a county election in NH
- from Slate, an article on a new book about the Constitution, one of my favorite documents of all time
And that's it for now. Reading on a Sunday afternoon, what a concept!
