Honestly dishonest 

Professor Larry Roth, a reader of this blog, sends along this note from the discuss list.
Recently I got what may be the best student excuse I ever heard for not completing an assignment.

Students were making reports or presentations about issues, policies, and practices of local companies.

The excuse basically was �we couldn�t complete this part of the assignment because our friend, an employee of the firm, promised he would but then didn�t steal a copy of the firm�s ethics policies for us.�

I think they were telling the truth.
