Promises, Broken... For a good reason.

I promised myself that I wouldn't blog until I completely revised my manuscript, but I have something to tell you.  

Actually, two things. 

And one of them is about Mexico, so don't get distracted halfway through this. 


First. Blogger has statistics now, including a map of readers. Below is the list of countries by # readers. (NATO and her allies?)

Second. This semester I'm giving my classes "pretests" to find out what they know (or think they know) before we cover it in class. Yesterday I asked the students in a pretest, "When was the Vietnam War?" and a student responded "1940-1950" then added, "(it was in Mexico)."

Have a nice day!
