Bruce Swenson was my old calculus and differential equations professor once upon a time ... he was or is if he is still teaching the best math teacher I've ever had! Congratulations Mr. Swenson, but I hope in some way you are still teaching ... thanks much for your slow, patient and excellent explanations on some of the hardest classes I ever took!

Great comment Anon. Great teachers should always be recognized and honored. The difference they make in the lives of the people and the communities they serve is huge. Attaboy to both you and Mr Swenson.
