I speak for the trees

I'm very fond of Jared, the Subway spokesman. A college classmate of mine turns up on a lot of commercials, mostly as a "damsel in distress" whose life is made instantly better by the product. Both of these folks have student loans to pay and I say, more power to them.

Did Mandy Patinkin really need to start hawking cholesterol-reducing medication?

The advisor (may he live forever) loves Roger's idea. We tweaked it a little yesterday, and now I have a lot of writing to do and a book or two to reread; he'd like to see the new introduction tomorrow afternoon.

My students are not going to like this.

Given how you've described most of your students, I would say that anything you do that they don't like is probably good for them.

I have a high school acquaintance who's been on a lot of commercials, we used to call him "The Monkey". That'll show us. . . .

In fairness, Hugh, you went to high school with everyone

Well, in fact, yes I did. Given that I was in high school for 4 years, and there were 1,000 people in each class, 7,000 people were in high school when I was there. I don't think it's odd that a couple of them went on to do something in the entertainment field.
