    Aren't you lucky you had a student who admitted that she was using the book
    after you considered it missing. Admittedly going into your office unasked
    was a wrong choice but she was ethical enough to face your wrath with truth.

    It's the child who won't admit to wrongdoing when faced with the obvious who
    frightens my ethics. Toodles.......
