- how about having faculty clean the bathrooms? [talk about fecal matter]
- how about faculty volunteering for leave and taking roughly a sixth of their salary in exchange for a year's working sabbatical? [not all of us have the financial wherewithal to do that, eh, but thanks for the suggestion]
- how about not talking speculatively about what might happen (insert a sarcastic tone here especially when there has been little leadership or organized conversation on these matters)

Nothing so forlorn as a pep band trying to rally student spirit for the following day's football game (UW v. UCLA) and finding that they actually outnumber the people who have turned out, half of whom drifted in after watching the UW Opera Program's production of Haydn's "il mondo della luna" (a very goofy story, goofily staged, and promisingly (and, yes, goofily) cast). We were among that crowd and certainly enjoyed their antics, quick though they may have been.
Given the dismal state of the Husky's season such optimism was refreshing to see.
Can they pull of a win tomorrow against UCLA?
So, riddle me this? How can a hanging noose ever be a "joke"?
