I called my parents tonight and asked each of them and my step-parents to donate $200 for the bat.
They told me NFW. That they had supported me for 6 yrs at Bennington while I never studied for a test, never got a job because food sevice was beneath me, and took pottery class and web design.
They quoted a 60s philosopher - Janis Joplin- who said freedom was just another word for nothing else to lose. They said Dean was AFU for hyperventilating about a $400 BFD tax cut while they had to work January 1 till May 20 as slaves of the state.
Maybe they will come around. All they care about is money, and they HAVE it. If I had any, I will certainly send it. Right now things are kind of tight because of the shrub.
Actually, Janis was singing what Rhodes Scholar Kris Kristoferson had written. Anyway, I don't know if this person is real, from another camp or an unaffiliated comedian, but regardless, I thought it was good for a laugh.
