Boring Class

The guy who was offended by "A Rose for Emily" and "Sonny's Blues" left early but talked to me about it during break. He was polite and joined in class activities so I guess I can't have justify any hard feelings. I'm still going to talk about the difference in swearing between Catholic and Protestant countries.

I know a professor at Northern who had a student storm out for showing a clip of Disney's Aladdin, which she thought was clearly Satanic. After he explained to her that virtually every example of literature from any class at the university would offend her in some way, she went to the dean and wanted an exemption from lit. classes. I would have liked to talk to her about swearing.
