i dont know where to put this thread, so feel free to move it. i have to read this essay for a class, and the instructor has not sent me a way to get it. i assume hes handing it out the first class, but i wont be there, and he has excused me. i remember seeing this posted here, or on the velvet, maybe. could someone direct me to it?
