From January 22 to January 29, I was in Denver for the Mid-Winter meeting of American Library Association. After being away for more than three years, it was nice to be back to Denver again. I met many old friends: Martha, Georgia, Tina, Jeannette, Tim, Anne, Jen, Joe, Liz ... I also got to see Kevin, Tina's hustband-to-be, as well as the two new moms: Jeannette, due in April and Robin, in May....
At noon, Friday, January 30th, I joined the other 400 members of United University Professions rallying at the State Capitol in support of restorations to the SUNY budget. In light of the current budget reductions, we sent our message to the Governor and the Legislature.
Circling the statue, we chanted:
- 1-2-3-4 Don't Shut SUNY's Doors
- 1-2-3-4 SUNY Hospitals Need So Much More!
- Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, SUNY Flex Has Got to Go!
- 2-4-6-8 Help Out Students Graduate!
- 1-2-3-4 SUNY Needs So Much More!
