    especially given the C part... LOL.

    That said.. for me, personally, there was too much about that raid, and the continued prosecutions happening now, nearly 8 months later... I mean, June 28th?  1 am?  2009?  40 years after Stonewall almost to the minute?  It's not only prima facie insensitive, it's downright disgustingly so, in my opinion.  

    At first I was ashamed for Texas for it.  Then I became angry at Texas for allowing and condoning it.  Then I realized, finally, that Texas wasn't for me.  However, I, like you, am trapped by a job, especially in the current economy.

    I have met many nice people here.  They just don't seem to be the ones running the ship, sadly.

    (Plus, I must tell you, I've had quite enough of the summers... that's part of it too.  I roast from April to October.)

      but most of my life before here was in Tucson or Phoenix -- so I'm resigned to my fate, which is apparently a lifetime of horrible summers.

      As for TCU, the "C" confuses a lot of people (especially out-of-state faculty we're trying to recruit. haha)  But our affiliation is with a very liberal, ecumenical sect, and their influence outside of the theology school is minimal.

        They really suck if you're a short, stocky, hairy man of Upper Midwestern stock who sweats a lot.  LOL.  [/Voice of Experience]

        I had heard actually that the sect with which TCU was associated was fairly liberal.  No Baylor, to be certain.
