Crib Sheets: Palin Wasn't Cheating -- But You Were
Ever write something on your hand to pass a quiz? I sure did. Now's the time to come clean. Last weekend, Sarah Palin did what kids have been doing for years to help remember things (and occasionally to cheat on vocab quizzes): she wrote some key phrases on her hand. The Internet has been exploding about this in the days since then. (No, I don't think she was really doing anything wrong.) But I tried this method to cheat on a vocabulary quiz in 5th grade. The effort wasn't much better concealed than Palin's. Mrs. Cholden pulled me aside, told me I didn't need to do things like that, and I never did again. Did you ever try and cheat as a kid -- and what happened when you got caught?
