I can see the 'see me after class', as we really ought to be encouraging fair trials and lawful execution for Communists rather than just throwing them out of helicopters. But the 'F' is definitely unfair, as the assignment was successfully completed.


The F was not for the quality of the kid's work. It was a penalty for thoughtcrime. But would the kid have deserved a thoughtcrime F if he had extolled Hitler and drawn a picture of Jews being shoveled into incinerators? I'd rather deal with it on other levels.

I think I know why he got an F. He wants to be Pinochet but afaik throwing people out of planes was an Argentinian thing. Pinochet was Chilean! :geek:

The questions I have, what would the grade have been if Trump was the one being tossed out.

I thought cargo planes were the Argentinian thing, helicopters were the Chilean one.
