Serious political shade on last night's NPR news update:
News anchor: "In the wake of criticism, Trump is walking back threats to Iranian cultural heritage sites."
[incoherent Trump quote]
News anchor: "Destruction of cultural heritage sites is illegal under international law, but it is a hallmark of terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda and the Taliban."
Teaching evaluations are out, and while not as bad as last semester (no one told me to quit teaching this time, yay) they were still pretty rough.
Not sure how I can reduce the workload in this course further without compromising its content, but comments like "more work than all my other classes combined" are not uncommon....
