The other amazing thing is that I did not say a word about the World Series and have yet to turn on the game, though I can hear it in the background. Will be drawn into that momentarily.
The real reason for this message is that several of you missed Declining By Degrees and want my opinion on whether you should watch it. So I hope those who did can give their recommendation on that. I believe we'd all agree the movie is not uplifting. Metaphorically, it treats Higher Ed as a bunch of different Hand Washing problems, ones that haven't been solved yet. Beyond that, I'll let the students in the class say whether there is value from getting the perspective of the movie. Please do that in comments to this post.
I do think that if the reviews come in positive a bunch of you who haven't seen it could figure out how to watch it together. I returned the DVD to the Library so it should be available in the next 24 hours.
