Movie is off

District 9 is a no go for the shared drive; it won't load that way. Maybe we'll just watch that at the end of the term instead of the other one I had in mind.

See you Monday. Email me if you need to; I'll get messages at or through Facebook fastest.

NO CLASSES MONDAY--Read below for assignment

Monday's Writing II is called off. If you sent me your thesis statement I will reply tomorrow. Assignment for Wednesday: Read "Wang's Carpets" and look up definitions of any words in the story that you don't know. Be prepared to prove that you have done this. See you then.
