I’ve got several reviews I’m been intending to write, but this week hasn’t been that week. I hope to have some up by the end of the weekend.
Monday we got word that one of our graduate students who had left the country to present an invited paper at a conference had been denied readmission. Our TA assignments were already stretched to the breaking point, and now we have to fill another hole in the schedule. Then Monday evening a student with an illegally obtained handgun fatally shot a university police officer when he was picked up on a drug related incident. To top the day off, an acquaintance was killed in a collision that night, leaving a young wife and children.
Tuesday there was a fire in one of the dorms, and yesterday a student with no history of health issues had a major seizure in class.
Not the best week for blogging. By the time I’ve been able to sit down and write anything, I’ve been to brain dead and fried to put words together. Hopefully next week will be quieter.
