    Is this legit, Fred?

    Because every few months or so, I get asked a lot of these questions. Sometimes actually cut-and-pasted word for word from some teacher's directions.

    Have you been handing out this assignment for a while? Because some of those questions seem awfully familiar.

    Ha-HA!!! Yes, I use these same directions in my California Literature class, and I have four or five times a year for ... maybe five years.

    You're the Expert they must be going to.

    Aw, geez, my friend, I am so sorry if they've been hounding you.

    But The Thrilling Detective Web Site is universally renown and beloved.
