My staff has asked me to pass on this email, dear Reader.
From: Bob, Salty (Ass.Prof, Runeological Studies)
To: All-staff (China, UK, Kazakhstan)
Subject: Petit-bourgeois sensibilities
It has come to my attention that the full-colour feature on me (see yesterday’s email) has been deliberately removed from the Runeology noticeboard yet again.
I have replaced it, as promised, and I shall continue to replace it.
I remind you, dear colleagues, that I stand firm against the stagnant tide of ignorance and festering jealousy that laps about my ankles.
YOU CAN TEAR DOWN MY WORDS BUT YOU WILL NEVER TEAR DOWN MY SPIRIT.
