Panga Boat Bust 9/6

Weekly Poll
Are you comfortable with prayer in public meetings?

Yes, atheists have too much control over what's allowed.
No, keep church and state separate.
Let anyone from any religion pray in public and that will make it fair.
I'm more uncomfortable with the fact that local politicians think they need divine assistance.

You've found a job opportunity

San Luis Obispo

Forrestt Williams

Dear Ana Korgan, I am deeply saddened to hear about your current predicament (“When dreams won’t come,” Nov. 22). Living rent free with your parents while working an internship in a privileged class town can be rough. I feel your pain.

While I haven’t lived with my parents since 18, I still can totally relate. Some of my odd and part-time jobs do not “existentially fulfill” me either. They do, however, allow me to purchase “well-crafted lattes.”

And while using the phrase “I’m just too smart for this shit” might sound like the definition of pretentious, I agree that arguing against blatant pompousness can be successful by simply pointing to your work ethic and job history.

Playing the role of martyr suits you well; maybe you’ll find a career in that?
