Ding dong

Ding dong the Dean is gone
Which old @&!&$......

Well I will stop murdering that song. Big news at school today, the Dean got a promotion. I don't know how things work at your place of business but here at LCC folks are promoted and given "special projects" and then slowly shuffled out the door. I have never seen an administrator fired, "special projected" YES! And "special project" in this case is a verb!

We think she finally pissed off the administration one too many times, and our organizing a vote of "no confidence" didn't hurt either. Everyone was walking around with big grins. The interm replacement is one of our own (although he had a lobotomy when he became an admin.) but at least he is a known quantity.

Wish us luck!

interesting exchange

Bob Dylan is going to be at MSU. Handicapper tickets may not be ordered on-line, you must call, it says on the web site. WTF policy but... I called and talked to a person about ordering three tickets. Well, it seems that handicappers can only order one ticket besides their own. WTF. So in good controlled hostile voice I said "so you discriminate against handicappers by only allowing them to have A friend?". She gulped and said wait one minute and came right back with the three tickets I wanted. Non-wheelchair users can buy more than two tickets at once so it was, in fact, discrimination. Always happy to point things like this out.

I got seats in the 8th row. Go me.

Happy, happy to all who celebrate! Balance, mayhaps I'll have some with the Dean out of our hair! More balance...
