Ohh, snap. Prop.Prof Krier just called me out.

In the middle of Property class, he stopped his teaching, looked around the room for "Ms. Nichols," and asked me why I said bad things about him in this post about the joke he played on the class.

"I didn't!" I protested. He laughed it off, then asked what NIU was. I should have linked to an explanation of the NIU tragedy, but I really didn't want to link Prop.Prof Krier's joke to such a tragedy. The Joke was a joke, and it served a good purpose. It was effective, it didn't waste much class time, and it put us all back in a mindset to be serious.

I explained the NIU tragedy in class today when Prop.Prof asked, and I'll link to it in this post. I just wanted to make it clear that those were totally different incidents, very very dissimilar. I mentioned the NIU thing to show my appreciation for Prop.Prof not being overly-politically correct and stuffy, like some professors would have been. Here's the NIU link.
