Today was the first day of classes for my Spring course, Media Studies 104A. The course is full with a long wait list. I'm limiting the enrollment to 50 in the hope of putting in more hands-on help with student writing. I'm certainly unqualified to teach writing, but I'm certainly experienced in spotting bad writing, mostly by lawyers. The First Amendment content of course is always timely, especially as the politically conservative members of the Roberts Court appear to be "weaponizing" the amendment to serve a conservative agenda.
