Biography

RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

Not Here, Not Now, Not Ever: the horror continues

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Juan Franco declares
[UNL] is ... a place where issues related to diversity can be discussed in open and frank ways.
LOL! As I've commented already, Nebraska is desperately short of a sense of irony. Please send emergency supplies immediately. Remember, at UNL you can be as frank as you like, as long as you don't mind stirring up a shitstorm of abuse on your head.

In other news, someone apparently posted something racially abusive on a toilet stall wall in the music building. Offensive grafitti on toilet walls; clearly we are only few weeks from Armageddon!

Some activities that are already being planned include: • Educational workshops; • Enhanced incident reporting process; • Enhancement of the NSE multicultural education for new students; and • Meetings with small groups to further refine campaign goals and to begin the process of implementing new programs.
And no doubt lots of new jobs in the 'diversity' racket.
