Final WORDS for Final Exams
Note: Today is the last day of classes at USU, so we pause to let students and professors focus, if possible, on final exams and projects. The WORD will spend a couple of weeks looking for lumps of coal at St. Mumbles Holiday Home for the Terminally Verbose, returning in a New Year with New Hope. In parting, we humbly offer a few morsels to tide you over. HoHoHo!
