Spent half a class hour working step by step through a cunningly clever linkage problem that most of my students didn’t get…
Spent the rest of the hour trying to explain imprinting, slowly and carefully, with diagrams, and left everyone looking like they’d been pole-axed…
Tried to race through Beadle-Tatum, Hershey-Chase, Watson-Crick, and Meselson-Stahl (at an introductory level) in the next class.
My head hurts. Need a nap. A civilized country would put naptime in our schedules.
Oh, yeah, Stephen Hsu responded to me, too, and man, ignorance makes my brain hurt even more. I’ll reply to that later.
I’d say “after my nap,” but I have committee meetings to attend instead.
