Heller again employs distorted logic and language to make his point, as Major Major issues  oxymoronic orders to his front office sergeant, who seeks clarification: "What shall I say to the people who do come to see you while you're here?"

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
