Five faculty filters
To my list of critical faculty selection criteria that has thus far included credentials, contagious character, competence, and communication, I add one more: compatibility.
From clearance rack to closet
I am an inveterate bargain hunter. I sometimes troll clearance racks looking for a gem of a pair of slacks at a price that is too hard to resist. On occasion the price tag seems so scandalously irresistible I compromise on the comfort. But it never lasts. I’m embarrassed to admit how many items of clothing have gone from my closet to charity over the years because I finally faced up to the fact that discomfort precluded me from wearing them much. Dust and recrimination accumulate in equal quantities.
