Notice about Cookies (for European readers)

I have been informed that I need to say something about how this site uses Cookies and possibly get the permission of my European readers about the use of Cookies. I'll be honest: I have no idea how the cookies on this site work. My understanding is that Google has added a boilerplate explanation. That's the best I can do.
Student Readers: A Warning

I welcome students readers to this blog. However, be aware that, although I do not use anyone's actual name, the descriptions of behaviors and conversations are not disguised. This is a space in which I may rant, vent, and otherwise express responses that I would do my best to mask or at least tone down in professional interactions with students. This is my personal, gloves off, no holds barred, direct from the gut expression of what it feels like to do my job. If you think you might be hurt or offended or upset by that, read no further. The person I'm ranting about could be you.

P.S.--Encouraging signs

I sent an e-mail to all my classes, just to see who's already checking (and who checks after I mention e-mail communications in class). I told the students that, if they received the e-mail before their first written assignment is due, they should e-mail me and write the word "swordfish" on the bottom of their first assignments. I already got two responses, one from a student in one of the 102s, one from a student in the SF class. Extremely cool beans.
