Another way to put it

Another way to put it….

  • I’d like to turn you all into Rikki-tikki-tavi’s


Who is rikki tikki tavi

Who is Rikki-tikki-tavi?

  • He was a mongoose, rather like a little cat in his fur and his tail, but quite like a weasel in his head and his habits.

    —Rudyard Kipling

    “Rikki-tikki-tavi”

    The Jungle Book


Who is rikki tikki tavi1

Who is Rikki-tikki-tavi?

  • He could fluff up his tail till it looked like a bottle brush, and his war cry as he scuttled through the long grass was: “Rikk-tikk-tikki-tikki-tchk!”

    —Rudyard Kipling

    “Rikki-tikki-tavi”

    The Jungle Book


Mongoose motto

Mongoose Motto

It is the hardest thing in the world to frighten a mongoose, because he is eaten up from nose to tail with curiosity.

—Rudyard Kipling

“Rikki-tikki-tavi”

The Jungle Book


Mongoose motto1

Mongoose Motto

The motto of all the mongoose family is “Run and find out,” and Rikki-tikki was a true mongoose.

—Rudyard Kipling

Rtt goal

RTT Goal:

When you’re assigned a research paper, your instinct will be to “Run and find out!” rather than to cower under the desk in a fetal position.


Rtt goal 2

RTT Goal 2:

When you’re taking an open-book test, you will check the index when you don’t know a term like block quotation.


Rtt goal 3

RTT Goal 3:

Back up what you say.

Nag wasn’t impressed when Rikki warned him to stay away from the birds’ eggs. But Rikki wasn’t bluffing.


Rtt goal 31

RTT Goal 3:

Nag was asleep, and Rikki-tikki looked at his big back, wondering which would be the best place for a good hold. “If I don’t break his back at the first jump,” said Rikki, “he can still fight. And if he fights—O Rikki!” He looked at the thickness of the neck below the hood, but that was too much for him; and a bite near the tail would only make Nag savage.

“It must be the head,” he said at last; “the head above the hood. And, when I am once there, I must not let go.”

—Rudyard Kipling

“Rikki-tikki-tavi”

The Jungle Book


Backing up an opinion

Backing up an opinion

Your comp teacher says, “Those who miss the most classes tend to have the lowest grades.”

But comp teachers are supposed to say that.

Is there any reason to think this isn’t just teacher-talk?

Letter to the editor 1966

Letter to the Editor (~1966)

  • What, if I may ask as a taxpayer and a person who pays taxes to support a bunch of Hoods, beer slops, punks, and you name it: U. of M. has it including the commie Profs.

  • I put 3 sons through college and not one is a bunch of pigs like you birds. . . [rather, they are] men with good honest jobs, homes, and families. If even one of my son’s had come home and said he was going to burn his draft card, I would have took him apart piece by piece, then stick him back together and he would have been glad to enlist then, and I would not have cared if he ever came back.
