I’d better start with an important correction: Thursday’s Daily Bulletin reported that Margarita Neumann, retired from the staff of UW’s library, had died recently. That’s not the case. Such notices are usually based on memos from the human resources department, and HR says that in this case its memo was in error. What should have been announced was the June 24 death of Margarita Neumann’s husband, Rudolf.
Hmmm… what would be worse? Not getting any phone calls of condolence, or getting many phone calls of condolence - all directed towards her now-deceased husband?
Philosophical debate thanks to the UW Daily Bulletin, which should be bookmarked (or RSS Feeded) by every UW student.
