Every time we are having an intense discussion on the collective faculty email. . .
at the moment when the debate over issues like the survival of our university system, the attempts to oust the president, the union-busting measures deployed against us, etc reaches the point of greatest intensity. . .
at that very moment when we feel that we are close to making an important decision. . .
there is always a colleague who decides that this is the best possible moment to add to the discussion with an email containing photos of cute kitties in need of adoption.
