...And I am She

"Never forget, the press is the enemy. The press is the enemy. The press is the enemy. The establishment is the enemy. The professors are the enemy. The professors are the enemy. Write that on the blackboard 100 times and never forget it."

--President Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994) in taped conversation after his 1972 landslide reelection. A new 2,000 hours of Nixon audiotapes were released yesterday.

(Special thanks to Today's Word, brought to you by my MS mentor Ted Pease.)

Explanation: I liked this quote. It refers to professors as "the enemy." I am a professor in training. Which means, I am the enemy. Consider yourselves warned.

Off topic: I heard on the radio this afternoon that all Bratz merchandise is to be taken off store shelves immediately due to patent problems. They are now collectors items and will be worth millions. You missed your chance.
Tsk. Tsk.

So I am married to the enemy. Yay!

I don't let the Bratz in to my house either. So I guess I'll never be rich either.

Yep, I saw that on the news last night too! I have a nail polish set that I will put aside for my niece's fortune in the future!
