Oh man. I hurt for you.

A few years ago I graded essays for an AP English class at an [allegedly] good local school. One essay compared "The Scarlet Pimpernel" with "The Crucible" and it opened with the argument, "Since The Crucible is a play, it has no diction or plot, unlike The Scarlet Pimpernel, so that is two ways their different."

I immediately quit that gig. My faith in humanity continues to be quite low.
