'Tis the time stidents to start complaining/begging/bargaining for their grades. So, it's easy to get very jaundiced about the state of the student body at this time of the semester.
A bit back, Thomas Benton wrote an article for the Chronicls of Higher Education, titled 7 Deadly Sins of Students were he takes down the wasys students exhibit the "7 Deadly Sin" (sloth, greed, anger, lust, gluttony, envy, and pride).
Then, just this friday he returns the favor and focuses his observations on the faculty in 7 Deadly Sins of Professors. Both are well worth the time reading. Benton doesn't break any new ground in either piece, but he does go over old ground extremely well.
