Fun with midterms

It can be frustrating, yet fun, when a student confuses the source of a quotation. After reading Clarence Walker's Mongrel Nation, a student attributed the following to none other than Thomas Jefferson:
The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice
I want a black woman for my own special use.
I need wine. Lots of wine.

At least it had a reference. You should see the essays (community college) I get to grade.

I empathize with you!
