From the Director of the Administrative Office, I learned three days before the surgeon was to punch holes in my chest that: “During 2015, the Administrative Office (AO) will transition from Corel WordPerfect to Microsoft Word as its standard word processing program.” I know damn well that this announcement was designed to kill me.*
But I will not be cowed. Clutching my WP cheat sheet, I set out this year, as I have in years past, to defeat the forces that would take freedom away. I repeat these fighting words for everyone within the sound of my voice to hear and to heed, and especially for you, Mr. Director,
“From my cold, dead hands!”
*Thanks to my mole deep within the bowels of the pestilence ridden IT mafia of the federal courts. It is good to know that there are still patriots amongst us.
