Nice - That was the best thing I've read today.

Will there be a test on this? Damn, I should have been paying attention.

The punctuation of "CliffsNotes" bothers me. His name was Cliff. It should be Cliff'sNotes, or maybe CliffNotes, but CliffsNotes is just plain wrong.

(Now that I have that off my chest, I can go back to worrying about chemical warfare and the contracting economy.)

Are they even that helpful? I used to like them a lot in high school, where the teachers usually knew less than the students, but I picked one up for Dostoevsky's _Notes from the Underground_ a while ago and I thought that the character portraits were really pretty transparent and the plot outlines pretty simplistic. Still, they're useful if you haven't read the book, I'm sure...

You know, if you don't read the entire obituary, you're only cheating yourself.
