Dear Sam,

I regret to inform you that you have not been selected for the above position mentioned. We appreciate your interest in Academic Computing and we wish you success in your job search.


Liz Abraham
Assistant Manager, PC Labs

Wow. Thanks. I may not have a job, but at least I’ve been “wished success” in my job search. You know what would wish me even more success? Hiring me!

Also, a half hour later, NJIT Public Safety felt they needed to inform me of this:

Today, Friday, January 9, 2004, Homeland Security announced national threat level has been lowered from High (Orange) to Elevated (Yellow). As always, you are encouraged to report any suspicious activity to NJIT Public Safety at x3111. As in the past, we will keep you advised of any changes.

Chief Michael Kirk, Director of Public Safety

Wow. Yellow. I’ll be sure to keep that in mind when I’m sitting at home not caring.
