Good, I like the idea. I use a formal exercise of that type in my class,
but I never considered the possibility of guerilla warfare. Of course, in
my official capacity, I can't reward it, but who's to say a student-based
underground movement would not move the cause forward. I know the dangers
of subsitutionism (Carrie Nation), but at some point it's them or us, and
David has an auspicious name.

Yours in struggle,
