A BELATED ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Nine days ago, Nick Pappas posted a comment, but I have been so obsessed with preparing our apartment to sell that I passed over it.  My bad.  He reminded me that in 1983 he was my TA.    Indeed he was, during one the summers when I supplemented my income and escaped boredom by teaching in Harvard's summer school program. [He was actually my TF = Teaching Fellow -- Harvard's term for a TA.] He was then a young man, of course, but time being what it is, he is now presumably approaching sixty.  Greetings, Nick. Are you teaching?  If so, where?  [Lord, I feel like Mr. Chips.]  This is one of the greatest pleasures of old age.  Nick prepared an extremely neat grade sheet, by the way.  I wonder what all those students are now doing.

Thanks for remembering!

I am indeed crowding sixty, and I've spent most of my career teaching at CUNY City College and the Graduate Center. Your course was the first one I was TA (correction: TF) for. You covered Plato, Hobbes, Mill, Marx, and Freud. I took ideas of course organization from you, and specific ideas for many classroom lectures, all of which I'm very grateful for.

It's good to be hearing from you again so frequently in the form of this blog.

It is always good to acknowledge someone, it shows that you not only remember them but also respect them. Good post, thanks for sharing it
