No need to go all the way to Pakistan. Just go to Dearborn, Michigan.

Don't know about Michigan but Alameda, California's Muslim population is American as Apple pie. Good people.

Geez-- what a bunch of schmucks.

It sounds like you've walked away, butit sounds to me as if you would have had grounds for a serious grievance with the institution, if not out-right legal action. At the very least the program director was derelict.

But if you've made a clean break, then it's probably for the best.

Best of luck.

Neckron99, thank you for the kind words. I became an expert at dealing with jerks in the Army, there were plenty on which to practice. The thing about serving cold dishes works best.

As for really bad marketing ideas, hold a book signing for an ebook only titleā€¦

Hey Poodle,

You are always throwing Band names around. I know you were in Bay Area back in the day.

Oakland's early TOWER OF POWER

HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS

GRACIE SLICK WITH THE GREAT SOCIETY

I actually thought some of her songs were better when done by THE GREAT SOCIETY
