The Boredom Hits With A Knockout Blow
Ethics: Who needs them? O.K., I get the point that journalists are supposed to act like they reside always on the moral high ground, and blah. But an entire class devoted to ethics in fourth year? If this class is so important, why didn't we take it in first year?
I opened the ethics text for this course (there's another text for the law portion), and stayed awake. That shocked me. Then I read eight pages, and still, I was awake. I thought to myself: "I'm going to do this, I'm going to survive this horrible reading experience."
Page nine: Passed out, out cold, count to 10 because I was done. I recovered 15 minutes later to finish the first chapter. I have two more chapters to read ahead of next Tuesday's torture. By that time, I'm sure to be caught up with any outstanding sleep.
