The Perfect Paper

So far, I have given 100/100 to a couple of papers that had only the most trivial of mistakes on them and which showed more than simple competence in writing.  I just finished grading a paper that was so polished that I searched everywhere for some of the phrases to make sure it was not plagiarized.  This paper about the Golden Mean in Greek architecture was not simply competently written, but written with great polish and beauty.  Wow.  It was a breath of fresh air in a swamp of sentence fragments, misused punctuation, crazy capitalization, and missing citations.
