The class on globalization went stunningly. It was an interesting topic presented well – our prof did an excellent job of splitting the information into lecture, group work, handouts, and multimedia, so things never got boring. Whenever I go to a class, I tend to sit in front and to the teacher’s left – this is because I am deaf in my left ear and want to be in a good place to hear everything. Glad I did, because the prof has a thin voice that didn’t carry well.
We got a crash course on globalization, culminating in a tape of Thomas Friedman, the columnist from the New York Times (the subject line above refers to the term that the political blogger Atrios uses for Friedman.) I myself was not to fond of Friedman, who is a Times columnist has been far, far too soft regarding President Bush’s adventures in the Middle East, but after watching the man speak I do admit he knows his globalization. I may have to break down and read his latest book. Just don’t tell anybody.
This week has been a brief respite until I journey to Emporia again this weekend for yet another class. Yes, I’m tired.
