Test on Thursday

My government class is perking along nicely. The professor is a font of knowledge; he gets into his history, let me tell you. He's a rather endearing old coot. I get a little aggravated that he doesn't seem to follow current events, though. He doesn't appear to be much of a political junkie; he was even quite proud to tell us he doesn't own a computer. (I mean, you can't be a proper political junkie without owning a computer, for Pete's sake. You have to read the blogs!) He gives us lecture notes then reviews them for the class sessions, and they may or may not be related to what we've read in the text, but they are thorough. I'm enjoying the class, as I usually do. I like to learn and I'm interested in our government and how it works so this is a good class for me. I'm a little worried about the upcoming test on Thursday; there's a lot of memorization involved. Luckily I already know the Preamble to the Constitution thanks to Schoolhouse Rock! He gives short answer and essay questions so there's a chance I'll have to write it out. There are other things to remember about the Constitution, like the "necessary and proper", or elastic, clause, which is in Article I, Section 3, Clause 8. Or Section 8 Clause 3??? Dang it, I have to go look that up.

Back to the books!!
