No reading this week. Feel free to spend your time getting a flu shot instead.
For this week, please just read the packet I handed out in class: Too Many of Us, Too Much Noise by Roxane Gay from Paper Dreams. Also, if you’d like to take the VALS test, you can do so here.
Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes. Walt Whitman
Here’s a Wikipedia article that explains the “trolley dilemma” I mentioned last class, in case you are interested in philosophical ethical dilemmas. (The word I was searching for was utilitarianism.) Beware: there’s a lot of fat bias in these scenarios! Tsk tsk, philosophers.
