I’m a little mystified at the Fall Break occurring today and tomorrow at LSU System campuses: The two-day hiatus from classes applies only to students and faculty.

Administrators (like me, even though I teach, also) and classified staff report to work as usual: No rest for the weary.

What’s wrong with administrators and classified university employees?  Do we not work as hard as students and faculty?  Are our efforts valued less than faculty?  Is our status lowly in comparison?

Oh, well.  I know what I’ll do: I’ll declare annual leave and take Friday off anyway.

I need a break: I earned it, so I’m taking it.  I’ll see you Friday at the Mall of Louisiana with my wife and daughter.
