Why I Don't Grade on a Curve
"Things in France appear to be calming down. There were only 600 car fires last night, down from 1200 the night before."
Anyway, I heard that yesterday on NPR too, when there were "only" 700 car burnings!
When I used to live in that area, I drew evil laughs from lines similar to DD's. "This year, there were only 552 arsons!"
My kneejerk response was, "Dammit, those lazy kids need to get their asses back out there and set some more damn fires! Only 552? A disgrace! Get me some matches and my car keys!"
