    Baby Boomers who truly, deeply believe in their hearts that - after centuries of development, evolution, and constant change - the English language achieved crystalline perfection precisely during the years in which they attended school, and any changes since then are illegit.

    The use of the pronoun "they" for an individual to avoid offending anyone.

    Maybe we could just give everyone the nickname “Pat”. That way, we don’t have to misuse the English language. We could also just say, “hey!”, to everyone. No names, no pronouns. But we can get extremely offended if the correct person doesn’t acknowledge they hear us.

    I’m not sure it’s possible, but I would like to see if our beloved university could make the process any less efficient than it already is to get signed up to serve as an adjunct professor.

    Once again, inconsistency from our ticket people rears it head. We have had 10 tickets for football for a decade. Always had 3 sets of parking passes. This year, only 2. Apparently, for a decade someone in the office did us a favor and provided 3 passes. This year, no dice. I don’t care what the rule is, just follow it.

    Not surprising. This is a prime example of why there won't be more than 12K there for a home opener at 6:00pm.

    The fact they didn't mail out parking passes automatically to out of towners really bothered me greatly...

    Should have been mailed to all pass holders. What are we paying for if the fan has to give money in order to be allowed the opportunity to still do the leg work? I know it’s no big deal for me since I work all over town and pass Tech twice a week at least, but this is a simple thing.
