Works Cited

I see far too many papers that have wikipedia as a source.

That is my most hated line with which to start a paper. (ha ha, can't have poor grammar in these comments or else get flamed)

But dictionary.com is mostly just a copy of Merriam-Webster and American Heritage. They shoulda just cited those instead, but it's still a good reference.

I have a student who starts EVERY PAPER with a 3-line long quote. And a totally nonsensical sentence afterwards. I slash points for dictionary definitions. I AM THE GSI FROM HELL!!

No books in bibliography = C+ from the start. Period. Glad to know there are other hellish GSIs out there. And that we have AHFB on our side.
