a ripe community for coincidence

So, I'm grading television program analysis essays for my summer Composition course. I'm reading one, and I think to myself, "Wow, this is fantastic. This could be printed in the New York Times or the Boston Globe." And by strange coincidence, it turns out it was!

Two papers later, I'm reading another and thinking to myself, "Wow, this is pedestrian and completely trivial. This could be a Wikkipedia article." And by strange coincidence, it turns out that it is!

I'm going to go throw a football around the backyard with my sons now. Fuck grading.
