Hello C

Hello C,

I was astonished when you came up to me and wanted to chat the other day.

Do you remember the way you treated me a couple of years ago when Prof. S. did some corrupt internal recruitment? You were on the review board. You people unanimously gave those lectureships to his local project members, to people who barely had any publications. One of them didn’t even have a PhD.

This was obviously a good way for you to cultivate good relations with S.

Let me tell you though, it was not great for your relations with us who would have gotten the jobs if the recruitment hadn’t been rigged.

You’re a cowardly collaborator in a corrupt system. You kicked me in the balls to be friends with a chaired professor. I don’t want to have anything to do with you.

  1. Frankly, C, we’re pretty unimpressed.

    Just lucky for you M is too much of a gent to out you, otherwise I’d get a few million of my Chinese mates to dogpile on you.

  2. If Dump gets re-elected and there is an opening in an archaeology department that is politically appointed, he has a perfect appointee here.

    1. Great revenge. The Met asked him for ar deco murals on the Bonwit Teller building in NYC, but offered nothing, he defaced them. Seeing no profit in it, he axed money for archaeology in national monuments. He threatened to target cultural landmarks in Iran. If there are any jobs for archaeologists in that administration, applicants will likely have to fight with Clovis points to get them.
