Update (15 July). Apparently, those junketing Social Security suits needed a break because they had received death threats. President 0 could restore a bunch of credibility by awarding these bozos a good ass-kicking and pink slips. Of course, that will never happen; blame will be diffused so far throughout the SSA that the only penalty will be a few poor overworked clerks getting screwed out of some annual leave.
Back in May, about 4 dozen UTSA faculty got to attend a four-day teaching workshop at the Institute of Texas Cultures (about the same commute as the main campus) on our own time, and the Provost’s Office treated us to lunch every day. I’m obviously working for the wrong outfit: some folks got a trip to Phoenix.
