Using the INTERNET for papers and projects can seem like a daunting task. In the courses I teach you are required to complete several assignments using the INTERNET. I have provided many Links that I believe will help you to complete those assignments. The Web literally has an almost endless number of destinations and there are many sites not included, of course! If you have an exceptionally good site you would like to share, please email it to me so that I can add it to this ever-expanding list.

This is a great quote from Warhol's 1975 book, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol.

What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.

Of course if I wrote this quote Coke would be replaced with Dr. Pepper!
