But may I humbly observe that even witch doctors do a whole lot better with the patients they treat than do Haim and Wayne Bishop with their ridiculous 'Hitlerian' commands:
- -- "PUT THE EDUCATION MAFIA IN JAIL!"
(How many members of the 'Education Mafia' have you, Haim,
succeeded in putting into jail thus far?)
- -- "CLOSE DOWN THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION!"
(How many Departments of Education have you, Haim,
succeeded in closing down thus far?)
- -- "BLOW UP THE SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION!"
(How many schools of education have the whole bunch of you
succeeded in blowing up thus far?)
[So, let's have it just once more, what were those fine sentiments about fraud again?]
("Still Shoveling Away!" - with profound apologies if due to Barry Garelick for any tedium caused; and with the observation that it is the EASIEST thing to avoid this tedium: simply refrain from opening any messages purporting to originate from GSC)
