Slow-witted, again 

An exchange from after class:


Student: Are we going to have to know about singular solutions (to differential equations) for the exam?
Me: Of course. They're still solutions.


What I should have said:


Student: Are we going to have to know about singular solutions (to differential equations) for the exam?
Me: What are you, some kind of anti-singular solution bigot? This class is devoted to maintaining an atmosphere of tolerance for all solutions to DEs, parametric and singular. Shame on you.

Comments:

eddie, i always figured that you were too conservative to fall for this p.c. crap. or are you satirizing those values? argh, too many levels of irony.
 


It's good irony, but unforntuantly, the P.C. crowd doesn't always have a sense of humor. Or for that matter a willingness to consider other ideas.
