Earlier I complained about a macroeconomics teacher who, in the middle of interesting times, was only talking about mathematical models. In our last class, that teacher discussed current events, and did a good job of it. Of course, some of the other students complained.
This is the same teacher from the Fractional Children episode. When discussing my term paper recently, he mentioned that my low grade on that teat was 'perversity' and that he would take that into account on the final grade. So apparently he has a kind of honor that makes him count off on the test for doing it differently, but then will allow him to fudge the final grade in my favor to compensate.
