I'm toasting it in coffee because it is 8:34 AM, but it is strong coffee. This is really good news.

Where do college students read the classics anymore? (BTW, 'The Color Purple' is hardly a classic, and 'Romeo and Juliet' is strictly jr. high fare).

We're still in the danger-zone. It's call the Door-In-The-Face technique.
Ask for a huge favor that is easily rejected then proceed getting away with tiny favors.
Perhaps all these Arizona students wanted was an A in the class but instead made national headline news for a ridiculous proposal that was shot down.
Somehow, though, somehow... I think these students got something out of this that they were aiming for - pity, an A, attention.
Ask for something big, get numerous small favors.

This is exactly what we are being asked to do in high schools, though. No more class sets of novels; we can have a maximum of six copies of any text to allow student choice in what they read. I hate it.
