    and bad in life which isn't always an easy thing to do.

    The Associate Dean sounds like a very interesting man. I'm 1/2 German myself ,when I've spoken it for whatever reason I've been asked if I was angry or if the language was profane etc. The accent alone is rather harsh so I'm not surprised that you found him "seriously harsh" at times. lol

    When I was in High School a friend and I decided to wear these t-shirts,in bold print "Can you say fuck the poor?" That was at the end of the elder Bush era. We almost got suspended for refusing to change them,wear them inside-out,or put something else over them. Ok now I feel old. That having been said,go get em' tiger!

      I only speak English and a few... choice... words in Suomi. German does sound harsh, and I guess a native German speaking English would tend to bring out the Germanic side. But his personality is very confrontational and he doesn't mince words.

      I'd wear that T-shirt in a heart beat! Would also make a good campaign sign to put next to GOP paraphernalia.
