Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! I read a quote this morning from Coco Chanel. “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.” There’s an ironic truth to this.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! There’s a reason that I address my students as ladies and gentlemen.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! This morning, I spent time looking at a math problem that someone posted on Facebook.
