Apologies in the delay since our last post. Because of complaints to the governor by Rumsfeld House and Opus Dei regarding this organization’s activities, the college president has banned us from meeting on campus and, moreover, eliminated the Gender Studies program, which he called “a hotbed of relativism.”

Nearly everyone in the Free Winkie Committee had to change his/her major—though Ben, who was in Comp Lit, decided to switch anyway, in protest, to Home Ec. Since several members of the Gender Studies faculty were also transferred to that department (fortunately they are state employees and cannot be fired), the rest of us have followed.

Naturally we also had to rearrange our schedules. As the semester is nearly half over, the only course available was Fabric Crafts Intensive, which meets all day and all night, five days a week. So we have also been busy catching up—we assume this is what the authorities wanted. However, our midterm group project will be a 40-foot teddy bear with huge ears whose name we dare not speak on campus.
