- October 19, "Film class -- week 9." The class viewed Chaplin's "The Great Dictator" and discussed the power of ridicule.
- October 15, "Film class -- week 8" focused on comedian Stephen Colbert's monologue at the 2006 White House Correspondent's Association dinner. It was fall break, so we didn't actually have time to watch a feature. Discussion centered around the role of the court jester.
- Friday the 13th I assigned some "Weekend homework" based on provocative questions raised in a leader's speech at the 2006 UN session.
I've been grading a lot of papers, which partly explains the light blogging here.
