Humiliation.

It is time for a new academic year to begin. The faculty have returned, well rested, from their summer vacations. The freshmen have arrived for orientation and are already groggy from freedom-inspired bouts of binge drinking. Of course, the library has to have a theme for everything. This year's orientation theme is space exploration. And I have been asked to wear a badge that reads, "Mission Control Research Group." When my supervisor handed it to me this morning, I looked at her incredulously, and as she returned my incredulity I realized that she wasn't joking.

Wow. We do some of that in our library, but for our programs for young children. I mean, in a college library, you're supposed to maintain a certain modicum of decorum... right?

I would expect that at Framingham State where we had a whole Christa McAuliffe center and everything, but not out where you are... interesting...
