Aren’t YOU brilliant?! “ When I was an economics professor, my students would sometimes argue that it was “not fair” for the rich to have so much more than the poor. So halfway through the course, I proposed that a quarter of the points earned by the top half of the class be passed on to the students in the lower half, to improve grade equality. All of a sudden, discussion about fairness ended.

Funny how personal experience and its attendant consequences always trumps convenient-sounding theories, lol. Whatever college or university had you on staff was lucky to have you teaching their students. Thank you for putting a smile on my face.
