Uh hi...listen, I'm not offended, but a few of our more secular students probably will be. Because yeah, I'm pretty sure our department doesn't want a letter from FFRF for the holiday season because you have up a window sized decal of the Nativity with the words "Oh Holy Night" under it.

I laughed, really hard, but I could hear it in the voice of a person I know who would say that!! Laugh out load Alternatively, "Ahhhh, Windows was run by little demons! They'suh fleed from the box after I anointed it!"

It's persecution baiting. They're waiting for that letter eagerly.

Public institution? Yeah, I'm taking that bait hook, line and sinker.

And they will then angrily comply, at the same time generating a nice "We Christians are being persecuted by those evil secularists" headline. Nothing you can do really, they're just being dickheads.

Surprisingly well, thanks! Smile Chair was still harping on "how is the cheating situation going"...because at the end of my first semester, a year ago, I asked her what our policies as a university were on students cheating, because I'd caught 2 out of 250 between my 4 classes, cheating. She has brought it up 2-3 times per semester since. Even after I redesigned my syllabus to stop just short of burning the test in front of them if caught. Tongue (But there is the "I will take the test and you will receive a zero".)

If it happens, then I'm sure. It's the person who decorates for every holiday, but this is a bit entirely inappropriate for a public institution...blatantly religious endorsement for a public institution. I'm amazed no one has commented on it yet, here, due to that.

If they want to be passive aggressive about it, then that's cool too. I get to put up posters of Jesus with a target around his face with a few darts to throw at him. OR maybe I can put up a nice satanic holiday display.

RE: Leave a message.
I'm glad you stopped drinking.
I know I told you this to your face but ... you really have NO fucking idea how glad I really am.
It was getting too hard to watch all your hard work of a dozen years just fall away.
I know you can get back on track.
I know, now that you're more in control, you won't need or ask for my help but ... I'll help you any way I can.

While I like the idea I think the buggers will try to burn down your embassy... speaking of which where's Chas? I ain't seen him forever.
