”David has his own version of the truth, and it bumps into my version. His makes mine not true, and mine makes his not true,” Tiffany says matter-of-factly. ”He said he wrote about our pain because we weren’t doing anything with it. When I die, you can recycle me. Till then, it’s mine.”
food for thought re: family secrets
which state to move to next..
More reasons to avoid academia: getting pushed into the adjunct life. Also food for thought on recent questions about what charity actually does:
The costs are then transferred to taxpayers. A report by the House Committee on Education and the Workforce estimated that one Wal-Mart Supercenter employing 300 workers could cost taxpayers at least $904,000 annually.
Yet instead of raising salaries to allow employees to live above the dole, Wal-Mart encourages charity - a common panacea to social plight. Universities employing adjunct professors, who are also paid below poverty wages, have held similar food drives for their employees.
In September, Margaret Mary Vojtko, a Duquesne University professor, who had worked at the school for 25 years, died in abject poverty with an annual salary of less than $10,000. Responding to accusations of callousness, Duquesne noted that they had offered Vojtko charity, such as an offer to fix her furnace. ASlate article promising the “real story” of Vojtko argued that she brought her troubles upon herself by refusing Duquesne’s gifts while working with a growing movement of adjuncts attempting to unionise.
In other words, Vojtko refused charity while pursuing justice. This is not a position to condemn.
