Wisdom from one of Hollywood's leading actresses

Ladies and gentlemen, Ms. Shirley MacLaine. (Fine actress; scientist, not so much.)

Listen, I think we're having reactions to this coming alignment, which is a process, not an event. It's been going on since, 19..., I don't know, middle Eighties. And with the alignment of this planet, and this solar system being in direct alignment to the center of the galaxy, of the Milky Way. That's the first time in 26,000 years, for goodness' sakes, that's a big deal. Hence weather reactions.

But also, look what it's doing to the human consciousness for goodness' sakes. Everybody seems to be screwed up. Nobody knows what they really want. The whole sense of fear is with us. The whole business of business is so screwed up, we don't know what's going on. All this is because, I think the frequency of the magnetic mind, our minds are basically being forced into alignment. And when you do that you have clear up old stuff. So you could say a lot of karma drama is happening.

"Dear University Alumni Office"

Funny rant.

I'm sorry to hear that the university's $750 million endowment has fallen in value to $500 million because of the recession and because your bank died. I'm also sorry to hear that you're dealing with declining enrollment due to the fact that middle-class families are no longer willing or able to bet their homes on a $45,000-a-year higher education for their children. I really am.

So, what I want to know is, why are you wasting money on glossy fundraising brochures full of meaningless synonyms for the word "Excellence"? And, why are you sending them to ME?
