John Edwards Verdict

May 31st, 2012 Comments off

I have little sympathy for the moral transgressions of John Edwards, but his misdeeds do not belong in a courtroom. As a victim of marital infidelity I appreciate the pain that Edwards caused to his spouse and family. But to air this dirty laundry in the guise of a political campaign contributions issue is misplaced and does not benefit anyone. I am 100% in support of campaign finance reform but this is just a sleazy and lurid scandal that has no business in the courts. It is as pointless as the Bill Clinton impeachment. Yes, the guy is a pig but can we move on people?

Rough Week

May 12th, 2012 Comments off

This week I had 18 hours of class to teach due to a weird schedule to accommodate the May holidays and the NU commencement next Monday. I hope to take a day off tomorrow. I think it was more of a hardship on the students than on me.
