OOPS! Classes start tomorrow (for me, the day after)

Apparently, I read something wrong, again. I was worried that I was getting late for class even though I was sure that I was in the right place. So I had to go to the info desk to ask where my class was, but it was she who told me that classes actually begin tomorrow. Ah well. Today's menu consists of: a positive review on a book on the Holocaust which tries to explain how it happened as opposed to why, second, what I consider to be a very important history lesson, a really independant voice, sometimes so independant he feels defensive and alienated from everyone, and another independant with his counter-point. This is a convincing argument for American hegemony by Niall Ferguson, even though the U.S. tends not to learn even from her own history, and an interview of Peter Singer. On Newsweek, some other dissenting views on what I believe to be a guerilla type of war, where the rules of engagement do not apply, and an apparently empty vision by Dubya, the cause of the spike in oil prices that has nothing to do with the Saudis, and where did the occupation of Iraq go right anyway?
