“Discussion question. Pick any two and write. Due today!

 
This is the Discussion Question thread where you will earn your participation for the week. As noted in the Instructor Policies, you must post 3 substantive comments over 2 or more days to earn the full allotment of participation points. The words in your signature do not count toward the word count in your comment. If you repeat the question, those words do not count toward the word count. Your comment must be at least 100 words (not 95, 98, or 99 words) to be considered as substantive.
