Classes begin

I've started my first distance-learning course this semester and had the orientation session with most of the registered students on Saturday. They seem a nice bunch, and apart from the complete lack of tech support to show them the system—and except for the fact that most of them didn't have the proper net access—it worked out quite well. I know we'll be doing some improvising, and I'm fine with that. This week I meet my other class for the first time, in a graduate course I've taught several times before.

Judy Genshaft, USF's president, did not in fact fire Sami Al-Arian on Wednesday. See UFF's web page on the Al-Arian affair for more details about current events.
