( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I take it you would not be keen on my proposed course, "Freshman Diligence Seminar", a mandatory seventeen-hour course (3 hrs Mon-Fri plus 2 hrs Saturday) for first-semester Freshmen, designed to impart the skills needed to succeed in college (e.g., verbatim memorization, good note-taking, library research, the ability to wade through voluminous quantites of collateral reading, and the ability to put down what one has learned in writing in a little blue book on short notice).

Okay, so I'm not 100% serious with that (albeit, I'm not 100% in jest, either). What I *really* think all college students should be required to take, that most schools unfortunately do not require, is a course in logic.

Sanity? Oh, yeah, I've got all kinds of sanity. In fact, I've developed whole new kinds of sanity. Why, I've got so much sanity it's driving me crazy.
