#173 - Difference (Watt Thoughts)
I was sitting in a meeting today of the leaders of the computer instructors in the Georgia technical colleges today (I am the chair of the networking specialization) and we are beginning the conversion from quarters to trimesters. The state person said that the general core had been revised and in quarter hours it would be 25 or 30 hours and we had choice s committee. I popped up and asked "what is the difference between 25 and 30?" Without missing a beat she answered back "5" and the room rolled in laughter. They were still reminding me at supper. Actually the difference is whether students take 1 or 2 math courses. I joined in the laughing at me. I have to admit that was great comeback at me.
This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
