And to you, too Donald. Looks like you have your hands full there too.

The Cal State L.B. listing of courses should have labeled this "Comparative Literature" course as "Comparative Trash" taught by a noted Professor of trash. I cannot believe that students pay good money for garbage at a state university. I would demand my money back.

If the students are going to vote on which texts to require themselves to read, what are we paying the professor for? Replace him with a blog that will automatically tally the votes and announce the results.

Good grief! What's happened to our universities? We have morons teaching illiterates. When and how did this happen?

I trace it back to the 1960s when students spent more time protesting than studying. Guess who is running our universities now?
