Then the Circus began. First it was a letter from the Lunatic Asylum (the Tranquility University Board) questioning my ‘academic qualifications’ to manage such an educational institution.
I was going to toss it, but decided to keep it for my archives. I didn’t answer.Then they pressured our local ‘government‘ to pass a law stating that only Tranq U. could certify other educational institutions.
It was a rickety piece of legislation which must have taken a lot of bribes, threats and promises to be passed. I heard of the ‘back story’, blow by blow as I ran a popular bar. I didn’t say a word.
Not when people told me, ‘in confidence’, that T.U. was trying to ‘shut me down’.
Not when I read about it in our daily auxiliary toilet paper.
Not a word. I just nodded.
