I wish someone would invent software that would allow me to post to this blog by mental telepathy. While I am commuting, I have many ideas I want to share, yet when I get to my desk, the emails, phone calls, student visits, grading, articles to read (or write) pile up and my poor blog gets pushed back. But good intentions do count, at least as part of ethos, as I tell my students when teaching Aristotelian appeals. The Greek name eunoia
for the good intentions part of ethos
seems so intuitive - the opposite of "annoy." Wikipedia's stub
brings up some interesting tangents. The Online Etymology Dictionary has no entry. Hmm. And posting to the blog takes more than just 5 minutes here or there - as I have to gather my thoughts - need a Border Collie for that task!
