The Passing of a Legend

Today marks a sad day. November 12, 2018 marks the death of comic book legend Stan Lee (Stanley Martin Lieber) at the age of 95. One of the greats!

So glad I got to meet him, just once, and have my daughter (Annabelle) and I take a photo with him:


Stan…you are the MAN!

I will not be present tomorrow. As a result I would like you to look at posting below concerning MLA Formatting Exercises.

Part of it is a handout and the other are actual exercises I want you to complete for class when we meet on Thursday.

Thursday, Nov. 8 will also be our Peer Review of the Research Paper. Look for a posting with instructions for that Wednesday – Wednesday Night (Nov. 7).
