That situation occurred already, and I posted an anouncement to Canvas to clarify the Adams and Weins assignment. If you did not already receive a text from me on the Remind app, then download it to your cell phone from the App Store, Enter this number: 81010; and text the following message to add yourself to the class set: @eng111mon 2] Reconstructing Bertrand Russell's life.
