I posted earlier about an answer to my exam question on constitutional amendments written by student with ID number “43.” I said that I gave “43” a C.
Most readers, I think, got it. But based on reactions posted by dolts at lesser blogs and some strange e-mails I received, some didn’t. (Who knew there were so many literalists?)
So, for the benefit of everyone, I’m hereby posting “43’s” facebook photo.
No, I didn’t give my current Constitutional Law students the question I discussed (though I’m confident if I had they would have had no trouble coming up with more carefully thought out proposals than the Federal Marriage Amendment). And I certainly can’t imagine posting a real student’s exam answer on a blog and telling the world how I graded it. That would be outlandish behavior–even for a law professor.
I appreciate the many thoughtful comments I received about this (fictional) post.
