Maybe it’s just me, but I love Employee Performance Reviews. Why are they only a yearly thing? I had mine yesterday, and it was really encouraging to get feedback on how I’ve been doing. I think I must be weird in this instance, because when they announced the pending reviews, most people groaned whereas I thought, “Yay!” I find it helpful to know what I’m doing well or need to work on.
And I got a raise. So yay for that.
And on a completely unrelated note…let’s stir up some confrontation!
I’d been reading a lot of articles on the recent NIU shooting and came across a comment on the BBC site that said: “How many more people are going to die before America does something about guns?”
Newt Gingrich: “The right to bear arms is a political right granted at the core of the American system to ensure that the American people have a right of self-protection and that no tyrant can take away their power or can put them in a concentration camp or can kill them without mercy.”
Ah yes, think of all the wonderful memories the people involvedin Columbine, Virginia Tech, and NIU must have! And thank goodness people can’t kill us without mercy now! Thank you, Mr. Handgun! And don’t even get me started on the argument “if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.” ‘Cause, um, yeah–that’s the point.
