Apologies for the brevity. Inspiration has been sporadic at best lately.
Paper update 3-6-2011: it has been completed and submitted to the professor. I am a little hesitant to post it here since it is almost seven pages long (including the mandatory analysis), but I will be sure to post the grade so all 20 of my loyal readers will know how the professor received it :-)
Final update 3-21-2011: These were returned to us today, and I was ecstatic to break out of my B+ slump with an A-. yay :-)
