"Nobody's perfect." That was the reaction of Louise Bimpson, our Corporate Director of Human Resources, to the complaint by Bill Wakeham, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Portsmouth, that physics departments contained too many upper middle-class white men. While admitting that the description fitted the Poppleton Department of Physics, which currently consists of 14 upper middle-class white men, she claimed that such imbalances were endemic in universities.
"Our Sociology Department, for example, contains more than the average number of lower-middle-class whingers. There is also an abundance of cigarette-smoking aesthetes in the English Department, a surfeit of very elderly men wearing brown corduroy in the History Department, a plenitude of demented crystal-gazers in the Department of Complementary Medicine and a superfluity of people in higher management with extreme language difficulties," she said.
Ms Bimpson said she expected such differences would iron themselves out in time. "You only need to look back to the bad old days when this university was seriously overloaded with academics committed to a life of the mind. Just look at it now."

Surely between us the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Definitely visit. We are very proud of our URL: www.nationbeforeparty.blogspot.com
We believe that a huge source of our problems is politicians placing their party before their nation. We hope to do what little we can.
Most of my political musings will end up there.
I know! That will mean crickets and cobwebs here. Have no fear family updates will be here, and some of my more silly stuff. Like cows dying from lightning strikes.

How does this stuff happen:
Maybe it's the 40+ plus step procedure to fire an incompetent teacher.
Thanks to the Supreme Court it is still a right, but that doesn't mean they can't raise taxes on them prohibitively.
Update: I took this picture in a small Montana town.
"President-elect Obama was gracious in his acceptance and I hope that the same graciousness stays with him throughout his presidency . . . I also hope that the Republican Party can avoid emulating the recent politics-first partisanship of their democratic counterparts. Republicans need to be the loyal opposition. Opposing on principle is the strength of our republic, but loyalty is also necessary. Loyal opposition is demonstrated by reaching back when the other side reaches out in good faith and by supporting the president when they think he’s right."Also:
Some great perspective on just what the president can do.
Fabulous and fun to watch.
There is a reason we are always disappointed. Our expectations are bloated. You won't be disappointed.

When it comes to "Hope" and "Change". I hope you change government and not America. I'd like to improve, not change, that which I love.
"Sheen, of Lincoln, Nebraska, says his vote is coming down to one issue: abortion. Sheen says he's "definitely pro-life" and he's trying to decide whether Democrat Barack Obama or Republican John McCain is more in line with his views."Umm gee that's a tough one.
Obama only voted against mandating health care for babies that survive abortions.

I've long thought that these sorts of propositions made sense.
"Why the Great Depression lasted so long has always been a great mystery, and because we never really knew the reason, we have always worried whether we would have another 10- to 15-year economic slump," said Ohanian, vice chair of UCLA's Department of Economics. "We found that a relapse isn't likely unless lawmakers gum up a recovery with ill-conceived stimulus policies."
Let's hope we don't have the New Deal II.
Please Obama no.
