A PROSPECTUS FOR A BAD INVESTMENT.

A syllabus is different from a course outline, and both, properly conceived, are different from whatever higher education's worshipers of everything legalistic and inclusive are foisting on faculty and students these days.
As I was finishing up my syllabus for the college where I now work as an adjunct, I asked my husband, “Should I include a note saying that no animals were harmed in the making of this syllabus?”

“You can’t,” he said. “Don’t you remember how you made the cat wait outside the door and how you yelled at him through the window?”
Sometimes all you can do is laugh.
