Tony Pierce reflecting on the rejection of his graduate school application and the termination of his employment at the E! Channel:
i am a chicago cub fan. i have dealt with rejection and misery and sadness my whole life. just the other day the cubs were up with two games left to play with wood and prior on the mound and they figured out a way to blow the lead and lose the playoffs to the team that ended up winning the world series. this is nothing compared to that.
Spending a good part of this week getting caught up grading freshman comp papers. Also, I only have two more items to complete before I am completely finished with my Masters — unless I made a terrible mistake and forgot to turn something in. I will be completely finished this time next week, and the job hunt will formally begin.
I upgraded my iPod from a third generation 15 gigabyte to a 4th generation 20 gigabyte thanks to eBay. Pictures will likely be posted soon.
I was in touch with Beth Siron today, a TTU MATC grad who is now involved with the Glen Canyon Institute. I’m looking forward to doing some documentation work for the organization.
Found this article courtesy of the University of Texas student paper:
Incessant heckling and shouting culminated in an arrest Tuesday night during a speech by Ann Coulter, an extreme right-wing pundit, at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.
Shouts became so pervasive during the question-and-answer session that Coulter informed the organizers she would no longer take questions if the hecklers were not silenced. For a time, the shouts were considerably lessened, until the issue of gay marriage was broached.
Read the rest on your own for the gruesome details. I’m just surprised people actually pay Coulter $30,000 to “lecture.”
