FINAL EXAM: Wednesday, June 13 at 1 pm right here in 129
If you miss the Final (and you'd better have a good excuse, and broken-down cars or having to take people to the airport are NOT good excuses) life turns bad because I'm leaving for Italy after the exam and who knows when or if I'm coming back...
