Getting YOUR Facts Right About The Sending Of E-Mails — Especially When It Comes To ME.

I can’t remember the last time I lied or the last time anybody could prove that I got my facts very wrong. I try to get my facts right and with a paper trail stretching back 35 years covering 350+ printed publications and 21+ printed books, not to mention quite a few interviews, it is easy to verify that claim.

So, IF I stand up and say I did not get an e-mail, it would behoove many to believe me at my word. IF I was going to lie or make a false statement it would not be over something as trivial as the reception of an e-mail.

IF you SCREWED up and didn’t send me the e-mail
and then thought you did
…. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Click to ENLARGE.

Click to ENLARGE.

 Notice my e-mail or even name does NOT APPEAR on that e-mail.

It was sent to Deanna. When Deanna FORWARDED my original e-mail, because there was a prior claim that my original had not been received, she CC’ed me. We decided to sent it from her incase my e-mail had been blocked — which might explain the claim that my original was not received.

The person who responded didn’t KNOW or forgot to hit REPLY ALL.

Bottom line: I never got the e-mail
because it was never sent to me.

Q.E.D.

So …

As ever, I was 100% right in the statement I made.

Deanna never forwarded the e-mail or told me about it. She is under no obligation. She assumed that I got my own.

She has her own e-mail I have mine. Unlike some other couples we don’t pour over each other’s e-mails.

Between us we probably get upwards of 60 e-mails a day. We don’t cross-check and say did you get this or did you get that.

So this is FUNNY, if not for the fact that it is NOT FUNNY.

Stay tuned.

All of us happened to be at Alton Central tonight for the October School Board meeting, in the Middle School Library, when the glass on the door broke.

It was NOT SAFETY GLASS!

Ols, single pane, non-safety glass like on the door at ACS.

Old, single pane, non-safety glass like on the door at ACS.

There were shards of glass all over the place and shards left on the door.

If this had happened when a small kid was opening or closing that door the outcome could have been DISASTROUS.

Of course, I immediately asked, when I was allowed to speak, as to why it was NOT safety glass.

This is serious.

The Department of Labor inspected the school in Spring. They found some violations BUT they obviously did not check the glass. This is not good.

What we don’t know is how many other doors and windows at ACS as old, single-pane, NON-SAFETY glass.

At 11 pm tonight, given that I work at night, I called up Mr. John Dever III, Alton Town’s Building Inspector and told him about the situation. I urged him to get to ACS ASAP and check all the glass.

I believe the school should be CLOSED until all the old, non-safe glass is replaced.

Well you have been told.
