Student A came to logic today ready to learn. Her "friend" did not. "Friend" was missing a quiz and my guess is that she'll drop the class. This is fine with me -- it eliminates the cheating problem.
Student X is silent -- we'll see. I have the support of big guy on this one, and I think I've earned his respect. I wish it didn't have to be that way, but at least I'm not losing political capital with him.
Several logic students have admitted they need help with the stuff -- GOOD. Keep both me and the tutor busy and I don't have to grade more craptastic quizzes later... I like this.
