Exercise 2: enrona puzzle or mystery?
 Reread the summary of Malcolm Gladwell's distinction between a mystery and a puzzle.
 Was Enron a puzzle? Explain your answer. Was Enron a mystery? Explain why or why not.
 If Enron is a puzzle, then who do we blame? What do we blame them for? (How does moral responsibility function under a puzzle versus a mystery?)
 Pretend you are Jeffry Skilling, and you are testifying before the U.S. Congress on your role in the Enron disaster. How would you try to present Enron? As a puzzle or mystery? In other words, which framing of the case does the most to mitigate your blame?
 Now, think about this further question. Enron financial tools such as energy futures, marktomarket accounting, and Special Purpose Entities function differently in the context of a puzzle than in the context of a mystery. Were these tools (say marktomarket accounting) used to cover up crucial information and prevent experts and the public from solving the Enron puzzle?
 Or were these tools elements in a mystery where, properly interpreted by financial experts, could lead to the telling of the story of Enron's collapse.
 To reframe the question slightly, are financial tools like marktomarket accounting, energy futures, and SPEs valueneutral in that they become good or bad only the context of the use to which we put them? Or are these tools, themselves, valueladen so that they channel us in certain directions to realize some values and not realize others?
 Try thinking of financial tools as technologies. (John Dewey starts this process by thinking of operations of logic as tools for conducting inquiry. See Hickman's book cited below.)
Exercise 3: baltimore case roleplay

Rashamon is a Japanese movie about a killing and a sexual encounter. These events are inserted into three different narratives by the three different participants. The killing may be a murder or a suicide, depending on the storyteller. The sexual encounter may be a tryst or a rape, depending, again, on the narrative point of view.
 In this assignment, the class will recreate the Baltimore case from the standpoint of the different perspectives of the case's participants. Margaret O'Toole is the heroinewhistleblower, false accuser, incompetent researcher, or trouble maker depending on who is telling the story. David Baltimore is a Nobel Prize winning biologist who is either exemplary of scientific virtue or an arrogant insider. John Dingell is a Congressional representative holding hearings into scientific integrity; he is either a McCarthytype figure engaged in a witch hunt or a genuine crusader placing the public spotlight on an internally corrupt scientific community. Theresa ImanishiKari is either a ruthless investigator playing the publish or perish game or the innocent victim of the accusations of a disgruntled former subordinate.
 Your job is to argue sympathetically from within each of these participant perspective. Then as a class, we will see if we can construct an overarching narrative or story that reconciles these conflicting perspectives.

Mark and Don are planning to sell each of their marble collections at a garage sale. If Don has 1 more than 3 times the number of marbles Mark has, how many does each boy have to sell if the total number of marbles is 113?
Mark = x,. Don = 3x + 1
x + 3x + 1 = 113
4x = 112, x = 28
Mark = 28, Don = 85, 28 + 85 = 113
