- make sure the Shadow Day Grid is current for you;
- if you haven't already, get me a field trip notification form ASAP;
- bring your copy of The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup to class;
- read the Rick Bragg material below, and give a quick response;
Rick Bragg material:
a) First, read "An Oyster and a Way of Life, Both at Risk" by Bragg, published in the New York Times on June 15, 2002. Read the whole story, including the editor's note. (Originally, the editor's note was on the story. Now it is here.)
b) Then, read this piece by Howard Kurtz, published in the Washington Post on May 29, 2003.
Response: Was what Bragg did that big of a deal? Does it change the way you read his work? Respond to the readings and those questions in a comment to this post. You should feel free to either to make your own comment or to reply to some comment by your peers.
