“Colloquia” ?

To colloquia or not to colloquia?

Answer this:

A useless, nitpicking, pedantic question?

Regarding a tendency toward involuntary discovery of evidence suggesting widespread ignorance and/or ineptitude,

especially with regard to linguistic communication.

Bay College academics, academia, administration, staff and others not on the ‘step-plan‘:

What a wonderful ‘experiment’ it would be for you to conduct a poll or random ‘student in the hall’ test:

Ask a student to define the word “Colloquia”,

right there, on the spot…

Could be, the results would be surprising to publish the trial of such a poll!

Better, yet,

how many delta county citizens,

daily press ma·lin·ger·ers,

could define this word without any help from their phone, google, a dictionary or their graded school off-spring:

Or, how many

‘high school scholars’,

‘alternative school scholars’,

‘home-schooled scholars‘,

‘school-of-choice scholars‘, and

‘on-line school scholars‘,

could similarly, without outside help…

realistically define the college’s use of


in a sentence they would understand, and explain coherently to their

parents and daily press readers?

Maybe, the academic responsible for designing the title of this,

the colleges “Colloquia” effort,

referred to this overly academic, os·ten·ta·tious, pe·dan·tic, col·lo·qui·al·ism ,

while wily thinking it would send an avalanche of students and parents to the library to look up the meaning of such a term,

of course they would have to ass·ume that their scholars understand what a dictionary is, and where it is usually stored.

What are the various topics

that will be discovered in

future “Colloquia” outings…


pedantically speaking…

Have you considered calling or contacting your

local republican state house representative

about your cougar problems?

It has been well documented that he, his staff, and his cadre of dnr wildlife biologists, managers,

all well-versed in assorted wolf tails, tales and stories, sightings,

and how to expertly cry wolf.

Perhaps you and wife could lead a uooper delegation to lansing and gain a audience with pope rick and tell him your first-hand experience,

the cougars are coming...

the cougars are coming !

the cougars ....

First the idiots from the DNR say there are no cougars in the U.P. Now they are playing down how many there really are!! My wife and I have seen 3 cougars so far,one that I thought was about 130-150 pounds,one that was about 100 pounds and one that was real small maybe 50-75 pounds.I do not think that young cougar traveled here from another state!! I am glad they are here, there are not a lot of them,so they take no real toll on the deer herd. It is an awesome experience to be back in the woods and you look up to see a Mountain lion looking back at you!!
