On the subject of that work-related course and ethics, if it's paid for by work, are you allowed to work on it?

It's a good question. The work-related course has been a hybrid all along, with classes occurring during work time and study occurring mostly during non-work time. Since I'm studying, I'm asserting that it's non-work time and therefore legal. Alternatively, I guess it could be considered civil disobedience, but I'm not enough of an expert on civil disobedience to really know for sure. If I ever get prosecuted for studying when I wasn't supposed to be, well, I'll try to write to y'all from jail. While I keep studying because I'm determined to finish this stuff.
