I never imagined I'd see the day...

...when I'd have to write on a student essay, for a third-year Theory course, "The Jenny Craig website and Kirstie Alley aren't appropriate scholarly sources."

This is for this student, by the way.

What if this person is someday, somewhere, put in charge of something important? It's a scary thought.

That is too funny. I see some wacky stuff in my students' papers, too.
