Teenage Mutant Ninja Philosophers

Hey guys,

So I don't know if anyone was designated to post because I was absent for some family matters. I wasn't in class, so there really isn't much I can write about, but because we don't have a post, I figured I would make us a quick one so we don't end up having to wait until the last minute to post our questions and links about the reading like we've had to in the past.

Everyone make sure to study up for the exam!
