    Dear Rat.

    Feel free to skip the rest of the class. You FAILED. Do not collect a refund.

    I wasn’t aware that Rat had any class.

    while I’m not attending college myself, does beg me the question how do you do your education online when the Internet suddenly goes off

    Rat could always claim he’s afraid of catching a computer virus.

    Some hackers are inserting porn into kids’ education feeds. A great excuse to cut off the computer for kids, to cut it back on for Rat.

    My degree program required some token number of credit hours in Physical Education. I managed to squeak by with Golf, Bowling and Badminton. But I don’t think even those PE courses are conducive to online learning.

    Rat isn’t taking any chances….after all, the virus can be transmitted via online and since the classes are huge, he’s done

    Well Rat’s ancestors carried the plague, so chances are they might be responsible for this outbreak too.

    My grandkids were thrilled that the schools would be closed because of the virus … until they found out that all their classes would be online!

    I was advocating online education 20, no! 30 years ago. With some notable exceptions, there’s very little reason to get a bunch of “students” in one large room listening to a teacher (even me) drone on about something.

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.” So far in my 77 years there have been countless instances that the U.S.A. will never keep its Shields Up. The FBI and CIA know all and see all and hear all, baloney until they act all.

    Stephan might want to consider doing all his strips in this style, it seems to be working for him.

    My grandson has been told summer term will be online courses. Although he moved to New Mexico with us he is still paying nonresident fees, about $2000 a term for two classes. Says he won’t be doing online classes. I think he deserves a refund for this term, also now online because of Corvid-19.

    I oughta try that with any college or university. Then if I get that answer “suddenly” remember that I’m not enrolled. See how many ask if I’m actually a student there first.

    I thought Stephan running out of art supplies was a joke; now I’m thinking it might be true.
