OOS Visits..

Social Work Land

[ed. note: I take judicial notice that OOS has been posting a lot lately. Either his client workload is down or the kids are going to sleep more easily]

    why did he choose to go into social work if he doesn't appreciate the exact nature of the field? How can he do his work if this is how he feels? it makes no sense.

    Who says you have to be a card carrying leftist whacko to empathize with people? OOS is an incredibally sensitive and caring individual who could have gone into any other profession. He will be a great therapist. He just doesn't buy the left-wing PC bull.

    "People Without Residence"? You gotta be kidding me.

    If my entry into this field distresses you to such a great extent you can contact me at, and we can talk about it.

    To anybody else who has a problem: there was never a sign on my application form stating that I had to be a democrat.

    I read the original post that OOS wrote. I think that Mr. anonymous over here totally missed the point. OOS's intentions were not to discriminate against certain minority groups, He was merely pointing out that the courses are too fluffy which is particularly upseting considering the tuition fees for this particular program.

    And, besides, doesn't anyone have a sense of humor?

    the post seems to have been deleted?

    Why does being nice or pc mean being a "leftis whacko" or "left-wing pc" or "democrat" ?
    Why is it political?
    WHat is wrong with using alternative language that is more sympathetic to the subject? "Homeless" in most people's minds means, a dirty bum seeping on a subway platform. If ch'v your house burned down, or you got evicted from your apt, would appreciate being called "homeless" as the term connotes or would you prefer the more dignified "without residence" seeing as you would also be clean, shaven and sober?

    Wurzweiller does more for the good of world understanding than anyone will ever realize - especially when they assign the chassidic students from brooklyn and the black students from harlem to take each other on a tour of their home neighborhoods.
