Being the Beak

A close friend who works with me looks like she will not be returning. I donated 50 hours of vacation time so that she may continue to receive benefits. My gift was the least I could do for a friend.

I was criticized for my generosity by some but I had the time saved to be generous.
I will have used 32 hours for the Jewish holidays so thats 82 hours of vacation time used in the last week. However, I still have plenty of time left and would have been in a use or lose situation.

It does not look like my friend will be returning. She will be missed and I hope her days will be easy.

I am so sorry about your friend and know your generosity will be a blessing, your reward will be great!
What a friend you are!

Beak you like to read. This one was reviewed in this weeks New York Review of Books. It details the critical role of the Israeli organized crime syndicates in the world order. Give it a look.

The world is far from over. Unlike you I understand the business cycle.

I may have to write my own book about
the Bolshevik Cabal employing criminals via theft and nepotism in higher ed and sticking the general public with the bill.
