I dunno, I think that's a reason why department meetings SHOULD be more like early modern drama!
Yes, I think a little revenge tragedy would help LOTS of department meetings. And if you wanted the subtle approach, why not poison instead of the dagger?
I suppose if we took the new folks on the job market into consideration, this would be an ideal way to run department meetings! Jobs for all!
One problem might be the rush to backstab one particular faculty member, and that would be awkward. Who gets to do the deed? Do we go by seniority, or is it like prison, where newbies like me need to off someone to prove our worth?
I think we'd have to go with the Julius Caesar model, and have everyone take a stab. As it were...)
ps. Susan, it would be hard to draw poison, for me, anyway.
Record another vote for "should be MORE like," please. Oh, and I have complete confidence you will learn to draw poison. You've got a knack for this stuff.
How about the chalice...
But wait, I've been to meetings like that!
oh my dog. That is awesome. mwhahaha!
