Surviving in the Academic Jungle--
I fought the good fight against a worthy adversary at USM, the occasion for my removal to MSU . . . Fighting at USM took it out of me---not the starch, I believe, but just some level of constant indignation that the new pres there caused so much havoc. Not a big deal, and I may feel different tomorrow.
Take keer, pal.
