Doe Eyed Enthusiasm

One of my classes is a mixed class, which means it has 1L's in it as well as 2L's and 3L's. I can mostly tell who is in what class just by looking at them. The 1L's are overly eager to speak and raise their hand at every opportunity. The 2L's look somewhat down trodden and tired - they're beginning to realize they made a mistake in choosing law school. The 3L's all look disinterested. It's interesting to see how just a year or year and a half can change your outlook.

A or An

So I've been distracted by this lately. I have a textbook that keeps doing this one thing that irks me. Someone tell me if I'm wrong. CNN does it too.

It would be an hour since the h isn't pronounced but unless we've all gone Cockney and we're dropping all h's at the beginning of words it should be a historic or a historical right? Bryan Garner agrees in the Dictionary of Modern Legal Usage but apparently there is disagreement.

Okay, so really I just wanted to procrastinate reading for this course.
