Welcome back!

My mother is a (now-retired) professor, and was a grad-student when I was born. I hear you about teaching; I've heard some of it from Mom. Though she had a lot more to say about departmental politics than the students...
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.
The other, of course, involves orcs." -- John Rogers
