An Innocent Question

Today, of all people, the professor of my King Arthur class opened up with, "so, what do you think of the Israeli elections?"

Immediately, a tumultuous uproar crescendoed as everyone began to speak at once.

"What a coherent, orderly discussion we're having," I remarked dryly.

A girl sitting near the front of the room tried to be more helpful. "If you want to know what it's like in Israel," she told our bewildered Professor. "It's kind of like this."

(And that is my contribution to such political matters.)

Oh that poor professor. He clearly didn't know what he was in for.

Yeah, he's very well-meaning, but I think he sometimes doesn't know what he's going to get himself into.
