Re: Siimon - when I was teaching at Florida International Uniersity, that 
hellhole, they had instituted a policy that each departmet had to pull its 
own weight financially - so busiess etc. had no problems, but painting? 
New Media? Well, they got rid of me and the new media line, that took care 
of that, but the rest of it was miserable - the department couldn't afford 
xerox paper at all, etc. Theater did ok by doing "popular" musicals so 
students learned very little, etc. etc. There has to be a way to have a 
_free_ humanities for both teachers and students - the so-called surplus 
economy that harbors art should also support it. I'm so sick of struggling 
myself! If I wasn't so obsessive/neurotic, I would have stopped a long 
time ago - a lot of people do, they go under, are swamped, not beccause of 
talent or desire, but an economy and ideology that basically hates any art 
outside of country-western and ballet.

As a friend of mine screamed years ago in Denmark, fuck them all!

- apologies, venting
