Dear Dissertating Self in the Terrible-News-and-Tremendous-Allergy Funk of 2007,
Just as Roosevelt issued The New Deal to help people out during the Great Depression in the 1930s, I will now make you a Newer Deal. If you work for the pretty diligently on the new Chapter 3 for two hours, then we'll go to a matinee showing of Spiderman 3. How's that for a deal? And yes, you can have all the coffee-and-chocolate you want. Certainly that's worth working for, no?
