Latest Beangram, December 7th, 2012.

It’s the last day of finals week, I’m sitting here proctoring my last exam, and Johnson Hall is still trying to figure out how many faculty UO has. You’ll be shocked to hear that the numbers Interim Provost Bean presented to the Senate on Wed. are wrong:

We discovered an error in the numbers I was given due to reclassification of the librarians from OA to NTTF.  We’ll get it sorted out and post them early next week.

    We can all understand the potential for error when making those tricky percentage change calculations. But he can’t even count?

    Shut up, Jim. Just stop talking. Stop writing. (Do start packing, though.)

    OK, it’s Friday evening of finals week and I’m bored out of my mind grading papers. Let’s open the virtual faculty club, pour a drink and start with the snarky comments. I know you’re out there checking UO matters for new posts in between grading each paper.

    JB: If you are going to resign/retire, now would be an excellent time.

    Bean’s blaming his screwup on the librarian’s misclassification? Whisper when you say that, mister. I’d stay out of the stacks for a while, if you know what’s good for you.

    It’s going to be amusing when the admins start bargaining with the union over quantitative issues. They’ll have to bring in Jamie Moffitt and Brad Shelton. Both sort of know there stuff, neither can stand being caught in a mistake. Especially not Jamie. I doubt she’ll have the composure to sit in the room and engage in back and forth.

    Some free advice, Jim: Never pick a fight about numbers with people who spend their weekends figuring out how to do fun tricks with Stata.

      Those SAS and SPSS types are fair game though. As for Excel, don’t make me laugh. But if they open up R, your best option is another sabbatical.
