The following is the first sentence from one of the papers I read today in the writing center: “People die around the world nearly every day.” Nearly every day? Try every minute. But thanks for that, Captain Obvious. And it’s not like I can say, “No duh!” I have to find a tactful way to tell whomever it is that he/she needs to find a better way to introduce the subject (the subject of this paper of course being death). Sigh.
North Country makes me want to hate guys. Fortunately, I know they’re not all pigs. At least, I hope not. Right?
