Btw, I followed her "dig-up-the-dirt" link, and this is what I learned "MaxedOutMama has a crude prison tattoo of Osama Bin Laden on her taint." Can't you sue for being outed like this? Is my "taint" what I think it is? How did this happen? I swear I'm innocent!
One student gave me a food-stained paper that had been folded into fourths and stuffed into her pocket. Her font was purple and huge, and she writes that she had never even HARD of the twin tourses entil she seen it on the news.
I used to think Hemingway was the master of the run-on, the comma splice, and the long rambling sentence, but I've since changed my mind.
I teach 'college prep,' which is a euphemism for 'remedial,' but even so. Many of these students will not be making the 'C' they must have, in order to continue at the college.
I just read a full page, consisting of one sentence.
Worse to come, I fear.
My head hurts.
Some of them apparently didn't know what "double-spaced" meant.
This really bothers me, ya know? 'Taint right.
Hey, THERE it is!
I feel your pain, really I do. How is it possible that kids graduate from high school without even being able to write as well as a sixth grader back when I was in sixth grade. Honestly, we wouldn't have been passed on!
so i ran your handle for myself.
tell us more about this fascination around hotels with minarets.
