Personal to a Cultural Studies, Law, or Criminology Summer Semester Prof

August 30, 2012

Dear Professor,

If you assigned a final exam or essay question worded exactly as follows:

List & discuss at least six tv shows that depict the police, courts, and correctional components of the correctional system.

… then one of your students has been Googling for the answers, and may or may not have plagiarized them from my blog.

Hope that helps.

And let me know what grade I got.

WordPress metadata is awesome!

Sincerely,

Stephen Bowie

    Ooh! Ooh! Please tell me some of your metadata searches are going to become a regular feature. You know how much I love them.

    Signed,

    “Who is Donna Lethal” “Donna Lethal Mugshot”

    Sounds like a challenge to me: “Construct the creepiest search query possible that leads specifically to a Classic TV History Blog post.” Check your metadata for the results!

    • Stephen Bowie Says:

      Well, that’s easy, because I once titled a post “Donna Reed and the Castration of the Mid-Century Male.” Never again.
