Dear hiring committee members,

Your insistence that you are "not hiring for any tenure track positions in bioethics at the moment," is an interesting opening gambit in our negotiations, and I applaud your persistence on this point after so many emails

My counter-offer, that you are indeed hiring a tenure track professor and compensating very generously, remains firm, however I am willing to haggle over the following minor points ...

Basing my career ambitions loosely on Indiana Jones

* Punch Nazis
* Such an engaging teacher that there's a crowd of students at my office hours

I want to see the Chernobyl-style HBO docu-drama about this

Some crusty and terrible military police officer punching his desk in frustration and then extinguishing a cigarette to look out the window and say to himself, "I will get you, Dorothy"

And then his administrative assistant, an effeminate gay man, walks by and adds, "and her little dog too"

You forget just how powerfully gay her friends are

Weird old sci-fi opinions 

WEYOUN: Don't you think Starfleet would allow you to be quite gratifying. Yes, it should be honoured.
