As a relative newcomer to the south, the holy crusade of some Christian factions against alcohol completely baffles me.  In Wisconsin, where I'm from, you can't even have a church picnic without a beer tent.  In Hopkinsville, KY, where I currently reside, the locals are happliy boycotting and protesting every new alcohol-selling retaurant and business right out of town.  So, the businesses move down the road to the more business-friendly Clarksville, TN.  Later, the Hopkinsville residents wring their hands wondering why they can't attract and keep businesses.

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."  (Who said it?)

Apparently, God really loves the German/Polish immigrants of Wisconsin.   ;D  They're a much happier bunch than I've seen here.

Ok, I am in a blind, sweaty panic about the Contracts exam.
I am certain I am going to bomb it.
I just don't get the big picture....I can't tie it all together.
I'm screwed!

Check out "Murray on Contracts" Professor Lewis has provided in the library.  It should be helpful.

I was going to go to contracts class tonight, because I missed it Monday, but I'm still feeling puny. 

Professor Lewis made an announcement last week about attending alternate class sections.  Apparently, it's against school policy.  Now, I'm not sure if that simply means you can't expect to get credit for attending on an alternate night, or if the intention is that you not attend any section but that which you are registered for.  I was pretty sick last week, and I was in a cold-medicine-induced fog, so I may not have heard it right.

Go Bo Sox!

I was using my internet phone to check the scores all through Contracts last night. It's not the Cubs, but hey, anyone but the Yanks.

True.  So, prep for crimes, let the other slide.  But don't skip out!

Today is a rerun of last Thursday.  Should I go to class unprepared or should I skip the class? 

I vote go unprepared.  I missed some last week, and I vowed not to do that again.  Better to be embarassed than to miss out on a class before a quiz again.

Somehow it has become planted in my brain that it has to be perfect....OK, now I'm sick of this.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  I'm going to do my best and let it hang.

You're where I was this time last week, Jeff.  We had to turn our memos in on Wednesday.  Seems you're a "frustrated perfectionist" like myself.  Eventually, you just have to understand it's your first memo, it can't be perfect, and this is supposed to be a learning experience.  Do your best, turn it in on time (late papers, defined as 15 minutes after start of class, are penalized), and don't look back until it's graded.

I'm getting toward the end of my memo.  I'm curious.  Has anyone had trouble fitting this into the required five pages?

Oh yes.  Almost everyone I talked with had trouble getting it to fit in five pages.  Because I didn't read the directions close enough at first (lesson learned  :-[), I had 6-8 pages single spaced at first..then I had to go back and really edit the heck out of it to get it to fit in 5 double-spaced pages.

Be sure to check TWEN.  Prof. Hogan has provided some guidance on the "Facts" section of the memo assignment.

Our crimes prof wrote the opinion that changed statutory rape in Tennessee from a strict liablity law to one that requires recklessness.

Which case was that, Jeff?  I have a different prof., but I'd like to see the case you're talking about, sounds interesting.
