Array Salvadorans slam Reagan aid
— arnold hedstrom photo
elections a fraud
The best way to end the civil war in El
Salvador is to stop American aid to the
military junta, a Democratic Revolutionary
Front spokesperson said at UBC Wednesday.
"The people are fighting not only against
the junta, but also against the Reagan administration. It is American arms that are
killing our people," Oscar Dada said.
Speaking through an interpreter, he told
50 people in Buchanan 102 that the stub-
borness of the Reagan administration is
preventing peace in El Salvador.
Dada condemned the upcoming election
as a fraud. Although it will have foreign
observers, "these are all countries with
military dictatorships, and they are going to
send observers of the election. How can
(Chilean president Augusto) Pinochet show
us what democracy is?
"We are  open  to elections,  whenever
conditions are favorable to carry out a
democratic process. But these elections are
not a solution," said Dada. "If they don't
respect life, how are they going to respect
the electoral process?"
"Since these elections are no solution, we
are going to keep on our fight," said Dada.
"We believe we have a right to be free, and
we want you to help us reach this liberty,"
he said.
"The wishes of our people and the
heroism of our people are showing to the
world that we want to win this fight.
Nevertheless, we don't want war. We are
looking for and want a peaceful
But the Salvadorean people are willing to
fight if they have to, Dada said. "In the last
few months we have made political and
military advances, and we are not alone in
the world anymore," he said, referring to
the  growing  international  support   for  a
negotiated settlement of the civil war in El
"If possible we are ready to negotiate today. But negotiation does not mean
weakness. Our people are advancing day by
day, and the government has no way to stop
them," said Dada. "Right now we have
under our control 40 per cent of the country's territory."
The meeting was also addressed by Francisco Acosta, a representative of the Committee of Trade Union Unity of El
Salvador. He said the turmoil in El
Salvador has economic roots and he condemned multinational corporations for
their continual exploitation of Central
"We do not know what democracy is.
Some of us who have been lucky enough to
learn to read and write have read about
democracy. After that we only know what
dictatorship," he said.
Physical plant
cuts employees
Vol. LXIV. No. 51
Vancouver, B.C.Thursday, February 25, 1982
Forty-six physical plant employees will be laid off April 1, physical
plant director Neville Smith said
And work hours will be shortened to five hours a day from 7.5
hours for 26 other employees.
"It's a direct result of the $990,-
000 cut from our budget (due to
UBC's $7.2 million shortfall),"
Smith said.
He said only cleaning staff will be
affected. "We had to establish priorities concerning the cutbacks.
Building cleaning had to be the lowest."
UBC employee relations director
Bob Grant said, "My people tell me
the way we're doing it is the least
painful. We're trying to give as
much advance warning as possible
(of the layoffs)."
Grant said the level of campus
cleanliness will not be seriously affected. "We see (the reduction of
staff) as undesirable, but we don't
see that there will be any real deterioration of standards," Grant said.
"The wastepaper baskets will be
a little fuller than usual," he added.
But Smith said, "There's obviously going to be a lower level of
A SUB janitor who wished to remain anonymous said seniority is
being overlooked in deciding the
layoffs and working hour reductions.
"There's one woman that's been
here 11 years and she's had her
hours cut," she said.
She said she and her co-workers
are fearful for their job security.
"There's not a very good feeling,"
she said. "Some of those women
are widows."
Another result of the layoffs is
that many employees facing a re-'
duction in hours will also be forced
from night to day shifts. As well as
losing 2.5 hours of pay, they will
also lose their 10 per cent differential wage for working nights. This
means a salary reduction of about
$100 a month.
Day care hazardous
Almost 250 children at UBC's
daycare centres could be evicted because there is a lack of money to upgrade fire safety facilities.
University Endowment Land fire
chief H. A. Crawford ruled last
week that unless fire safety facilities
of the nine Acadia Camp buildings
are raised to meet regulations they
will be closed down.
A UBC physical plant report estimates the necessary renovations to
the 40-year-old huts will cost about
$1 million. But according to UBC
vice president Jim Kennedy the
necessary funds are unavailable,
under the current provincial government fiscal policies.
Kennedy said although Crawford
had not set a deadline, he did ask
the university to come up with a
plan to accommodate the fire safety
regulations within a reasonable time
— probably a year or two.
"The parents concerned say, of
course, that they can't afford to upgrade the buildings. We're not allowed by the current education institution finance act to spend
money on this. We're not trying to
point the finger at anybody, we've
just strayed into a dilemma," Kennedy said.
But daycare supervisors are frustrated with the UBC administration.
"The   university's   attitude   has
been 'don't ask us for money, but
we'll take the credit, ' " said supervisor Barbara Ellum.
Ellum said parents had to pressure the university in 1973 before it
agreed to give them the Second
World War army huts which were
slated to be torn down.
"The parents took those huts and
made them into child care facilities;
they had to grovel for the materials.

SFU cuts cool million
Canadian University Press
The body count is high after
Simon Fraser University's board of
governors voted on budget retrenchment Tuesday.
The board approved approximately $1 million in cuts. Although
students, faculty and staff spoke
more than three hours against SFU
president George Pedersen's proposed cuts, the board endorsed
most of them.
In some areas the proposed cutbacks were reduced, and the recommendation to introduce differential
fees for foreign students was
The cuts include:
• the elimination of the
reading/study centre;
• $91,000 from the english 010
program, a course in expository
writing open to non-english majors;
• $60,000 from the teaching
assistant budget;
• $75,000 from the education
faculty salary in the professional
development program;
• $100,000 from the computing
centre operations budget;
• $50,000 from the non-faculty
budget for science;
• $35,000 from the registrar's
office budget;
• $25,000 from SFU's fund for
faculty research grants;
• $20,000 from continuing
studies operating budget, and
• $5,500 from the recreation
All funding for the athletic
budget was cut, but the program
will exist for another month. If the
athletic department can obtain
enough private funding, SFU will

Vander Zalm (Surrey) was the only
MLA to express dissatisfaction
about the recent 33 per cent tuition
increase at UBC.

said. "It's partly the government's
fault; it should be gradual. Nobody

"I don't know what could be
done. But something should be
done," he said.
Twelve Socred MLAs visited
UBC at the invitation of the Alumni
Association, the Young Socreds
and the university. They ate lunch
with students in Place Vanier
residence and later attended
workshops on various topics in the
Asian Centre.
Neither universities minister Pat
McGeer or education minister Brian
Smith attended the meetings.
The MLAs met privately with administration president Doug Kenny,
who called the talk "good" and
said it covered a wide range of problems faced by universities.
"They (the Socreds) were appreciative. They didn't need
reassurance that this province's
citizens had a university of which
they could be proud," he said.
"We talked about problems
ranging from manpower needs, tuition fees, housing and community
The workshop topics included
polarization and the B.C. electorate; energy issues in B.C.
regulating the professions (doctors,
lawyers, engineers), and housing
economics and policy. All
workshops were given by UBC
faculty members.
Tom Waterland (Yale-Lillooet),
minister of forests, said students
should pay their share of educational costs. "A student has a
responsibility to pay a percentage of
the educational cost. The percentage now is not very much higher
than it was 20 years ago," he said.
He called UBC's budget planning
"unrealistic." Page 2

Daycare given low priority
From page 1
The point is the university had the
money at the time, and it would
have been very appropriate to help
out, but they didn't. Now they can
turn around and say 'sorry, but we
have no money,' " she said.
"Those buildings have always
been unsafe, and they knew it. The
fire chief was constantly coming
around," she added.
Daycare supervisor Anne Gemser
does not believe the university can
justly close the child care centres.
"Daycare is a real necessity on
campus. It doesn't seem right that
on a family-oriented campus, where
you can't get into a townhouse unless you have two children, they
should not provide daycare," she
The nine centres are independent
units run by a coordinator, half of
whose salary is paid by the university.
"Besides the coordinator's
salary, all the university has ever
provided is the buildings. It gives
them a very good foot in the door
for saying the daycare is the priority
of the university, staff, and
students, when it should be for the
community which has done all the
work," said Ellum.
Of the 248 children at the nine
centres this year, 147 are children of
students, 41 of faculty, 34 of administration, and only 26 from outside UBC.
Daycare supervisor Deborah Cu-
pidoh said if the parents, university,
and daycares all got together and
stopped political infighting, they
could work together towards a common end.
"I think the university takes the
essential service we provide for
granted. I'm not saying that they
should bear all the responsibility,
but they're not taking enough,"
Cupidoh said.
Gemser said daycare centres are
scarce in the west side of Vancouver.
"If they decide to close the university daycare centres down, people will have to go outside the gates,
maybe so far as downtown or the
east end for facilities," she said.

Law executive not guilty
Not guilty by reason of doubt.
That's what the law students' association executive were found
Wednesday by 100 law students at
an association general meeting.
The executive were under attack
for allegedly exceeding their constitutional powers condemning two
engineering week activities, the
Lady Godiva ride and the Red Rag,
in a letter to The Ubyssey.
LSA ombudsperson Sandra Gar-
ossing, who wrote the letter for the
LSA executive, criticized the EUS
for promoting social inequality, degrading minorities and poking fun
at Clifford Olson's murder victims.
The executive had defended their
actions, saying that even if they exceeded their constitutional powers,
they acted in the best interests of
law students.
A resolution supporting the executive position was passed by a 65
per cent yes vote.
Those opposing the executive
claimed they had violated the LSA
constitution by passing a resolution
on a non-LSA concern.
Those supporting the executive
claimed the matter was a proper
LSA concern. Some of those who
supported the executive accused opponents of tacitly endorsing the engineering activities.
Other people supported the executive as one of the few organizations to take action against the
Lady Godiva ride and the Red Rag.
"We weren't that far out of line
(in passing the original motion),"
LSA president Dave Hill said Wednesday. Students at the meeting
were more concerned about the
precedent of the LSA executive
commenting on any matter, whether or not it concerned UBC law
students he said.
SUS defends elections
Attempts by science students to

undergraduate society's Feb. 17
executive elections have been called
"ludicrous" and "ridiculous" by
science executives.
There was one and only one voter
count of 62 by chief returning officer Sylvia Craseman, said president Tiny Sutton, treasurer P:andy
Frank and second vice president
Peter Buckley, despite claims from
losing candidate Horacio de la
Cueva that there were three different voter counts.
"I don't think (the election) was
right," said de la Cueva in The
Ubyssey Tuesday. But the SUS ex
ecutive dismissed de la Cueva's contention that the election was unfair.
"he (de la Cueva) got 15 people
to sign his petition to be put on the
ballot, but he only got 13 votes,"
Frank said. De la Cueva was a
"sore loser" who was just being
troublesome said Frank.
The executive discounted that
another election should be called
because of alleged irregularities. "If
the Alma Mater Society feels that it
wasn't a fair election, then it's fine
by us if a group outside SUS redoes
it," Frank said.

Project funding still
hopeful for buildings
A UBC official is hopeful
premier Bill Bennett's plan to limit
public sector funding will not
adversely affect new university construction projects.
Jim Kennedy, UBC vice
president of university services, said
Wednesday the university must wait
until the provincial budget is
brought down in April to see if construction projects currently in the
planning stages will receive final approval.
"We won't know what effect
there will be until the budget comes
out," he said. "We are hoping (the
projects) will be given approval."
Kennedy said the new projects
have received funds for planning,
but not for actual construction.
"We've only been given money
for planning. There will be some
question whether the projects will
be approved.
"In May we will go to the
treasury board and we will ask for
money to go ahead. That's when
we'll know. There might be some
review by the ministry," he said.
Kennedy said the projects include
a new chemistry/physics building to
be built on the current home
economics building site, and expan
sions to the MacDonald dentistry
He said new physical plant
buildings are also planned, to
"replace those awful huts we have
right now." The university is also
expected to foot part of the bill for

Dirty business
There are 46 people on this campus who have just had the grim reality of
cutbacks and the provincial government's funding policies thrown in their
At a time when the cost of living seems to rise in leaps and bounds, they
have been told to expect less money and less work. It is indicative of Social
Credit's priorities when it comes to allocating money: give more funds to
mega-projects and steel structures and take away more dollars from working people and those on the lower end of the economic scale.
It is ironic that these 46 people were given the bad news just a few days
before more than a dozen Socred MLAs visited our campus. "It's tough all
over," said one Socred. "You've got to tighten your belts," said others.
But it seems the only people being asked to tighten their belts are the ones
who already have it the toughest: the unemployed, the low paid, single
parents, women and landed immigrants.
What about highly-paid university administrators, politicians, high-
ranking civil servants and corporate business people? They aren't being
asked to make any sacrifices, unless it means one less cocktail at expense
account lunches or higher property taxes on their luxury homes.
The 46 people who have been told to expect less money are not the only
ones who will be given the short-shrift by the government and this university. We can expect more reductions, more layoffs and more unemployed.
The number won't stay at 46 for long. Soon it will be 75, then 100, then . ..
Once again a government is preaching restraint and belt-tightening and
once again the people who can afford it least are being asked to shoulder
most of the burden.
Aid for visa students slammed by UBC local
R. A. McBlane's letter (Feb. 16)
denied the fact that foreign students
are being subsidized. Either he (I'll
make the chauvinistic assumption
that R. A. McBlane is a male) has
not seriously thought about the problem, or he is deliberately dodging
this issue.
This university's budget for the
fiscal year 1981-82 has been set at
$180,614,000. Of that about
$15,716,000 was covered by student
tuition fees. Virtually all of the remaining $164,898,000 is being paid
for directly or indirectly, by governments — a sum equivalent to 91.3
per cent or the total.

government continues to make
sizeable educational transfer
payments to Victoria. However
there is absolutely no reason at all
why foreigners on student visas
should be given such massive handouts.
Why should British Columbia
pay for the education of Americans
and other foreigners? The cost of
these students' educations ought to
be paid for by the economies of
their home countries. I don't see the
Americans, the Japanese or anyone
else rushing to subsidize our
students to the tune of 90 per cent.
Mr. McBlane blatantly denies
that foreigners are being subsidized.
However a lot of his soul-mates use
a different approach. They argue
that we shouldn't bother to implement differential fees, because the
number of "international" students
is insignificantly small.
But, even if we are to use
McBlane's own estimate of "less
than 3.5 per cent of total UBC
enrolment," then this means that
more than one in every 30 students
attending UBC is a foreigner. A
thirtieth of $164,898,000 is equal to
about $5,500,000. Thus by abandoning our principles on the question of differential fees we are suffering substantial monetary losses
If anything, the real cost of this
subsidy is probably closer to
$6,000,000, as a relatively small
number of foreign students at this
university are only part-time
students. But whether it is above
$6,000,000 or below $5,500,000,
one can be certain that a differential
fee system would have gone a long
way   towards   solving   this   year's
$7,843,000 budgetary shortfall.
In a way I can understand
McBlane's stand. As the executive
director of International House he
has a vested interest in either maintaining the status quo, or making
conditions even more attractive for
visa students. In this he appears to
be following the latter course of action, since his letter seems to suggest that these students should be
given even greater access to medical
services, unemployment insurance,
pension plans and scholarships.
However, / too have an interest
in this matter; an interest that goes
beyond being a "parochial" taxpayer. As a nationalist I know that
this university has to be a part of
the British Columbian whole.
Flocks of liberals might boast about
the cultural and intellectual contributions of foreign students. But
this is no consolation at all for those
of us who will witness the ruin of
post-secondary education by
wasteful spending and the government's lack of purpose.

Select quotes, editing, confusing
In the Tuesday edition of The
Ubyssey I submitted a letter and
was quoted about the march
against cutbacks, in support of
education scheduled Friday, March
12. I was misquoted as saying that
mass rallies seem to be "the only
way" to pressure government.
Stephen Learey of the SAE said
that "it seems necessary now" to
pressure government in the form of
a mass rally.
In a portion of my letter that was
cut, I listed some other lobbying
methods being undertaken, for instance: Dave Frank, new Alma
Mater Society president, and the
Canadian Federation of Students
will be making presentations to the
provincial government. Also, in
conjunction with the CFS, the college students and college faculty
association, we will be distributing
leaflets, posters and pamphlets. As
well, a voter registration drive is
Selective quote creation and/or
editing should not change the tone
of an article or letter. It is hard to
appeal to the average AUBC student when the message is sensationally distorted.
Another line that did not make
copy was that: "You don't have to
be a radical to care about our
education system." The march is
strongly supported by the other
lower mainland campuses, especially the college students and faculty. I
hope that we can get UBC to participate so that government is made
aware of the post-secondary under-
funding problems, and the benefits
of education as a long term investment in the growth and well-being
of our society.

Rag, Ride distasteful, but
It was with some interest, upon a
recent visit to my alma mater, that I
read the letter (published in the Feb.
12. Ubyssey) from Sandra Gar-
ossino, ombudsperson for the
Law Students Association (UBC),
in which she deplored the sexist and
racist activities of the infamous
It certainly speaks well of the
Law Students Association that they
have chosen to elect an ombudsperson who finds the Lady Godiva ride
and the Red Rag so distasteful and
who further believes that the social
inequities so oblivious to the
engineers are those against which
we should all be working. The Red
Rag and the Lady Godiva ride probably undermine the reputation of
the university somewhat less than is
suggested, but in any case, the controversy they engender — Ms.
Garossino's letter being a case in
point — restores that reputation, or
at least goes a long ways towards
restoring it.
Of course, it shouldn't need
restoring in the first place. And, as
Ms. Garossino suggests, the university's reputation is the least important casuality of the affair. The corruption of our sensibilities by racist
humor is a matter more serious than
even protests against racist humor
indicate; if we care at all about this
aspect of ourselves we become at
once outraged by racist humor and
impervious to its insidious effects.
Impervious, that is, unless we happen not to be white. But not
everyone in this milieu is both white
and concerned to keep their sensibilities healthy (The most racist
and vicious men's room graffiti is to
be found right at UBC).
Unfortunately, I am very doubtful about regulating such expressions. I would rather see people
somewhat less concerned about
regulating racism and sexism away
and more concerned with the question of how racists or sexists came
to be that way, and perhaps just as
importantly, how compassionate,
tolerant and empathetic people
came to be that way. This may
sound altogether too passive, and in
urgent circumstances is certainly,
by itself, too slow, but of course, in
the long view, it is absolutely in-
dispensible. As a recommended
course of "action" it sadly lacks
charisma, and promises gratification of the impulse to rid our society of these inequities in a rather
belated manner. But it is not mere
contemplation that I am advocating, rather it is the attending
to the quality of one's own thought
and feeling and of one's interpersonal relationships. It includes the
cultivation of empathy and of
honest and sometimes difficult
It is unfortunate that apologists
of racism and sexism have noted
that you cannot legislate mores and
sentiments, for the result is that
when such a remark is made in good
faith it sounds, to those who have
no qualms about trying to legislate
mores and sentiments (although
nobody that I know consciously or
deliberately tries to do exactly that:
it seems rather to be a tactic motivation, like just another underhanded
tactic by an unreconstructed sexist
or racist. There is first of all the
pragmatic question, even if
regulating such expression is
palatable at all, of what constitutes
sexism or racism. It seems like
something about which reasonable
people can differ: a case in point
(although this is not usually the subject of regulation) would be Ms.
Garossino's choice of signing her
name with her position described as
"ombudsperson" — my preference
is for the term "ombudsman," based partly upon euphony, and in
larger part upon my desire that the
project of rooting out sexist
residues in our language adopt the
more effective strategy of
underscoring not the gender —
specific meaning of the suffic
"-man" but the gender-neutral.
The use of the suffix "-person"
does the opposite of this. Before
this mistaken strategy was adopted,
I heard and used the address
"Madam Chairman" without ever
feeling that it was inappropriate,
for it never was inappropriate, nor
is it now. I would certainly not have
any qualms about voting for a
female candidate running for the
office of ombudsman. But on this
point, as well as many others, the
minds of people of good faith are
made up, and the disagreement
should tell us something about the
intrinsic distastefulness of
legislating a solution.
That the university would be better off without the Red Rag is not
necessarily a strong enough argument for us to bring pressure to
bear upon the administration to
have its publication cease. The proposal, as stated, is simply too ad
hoc, and I am a little surprised that
Ms. Garossino, as a law student of
above-average calibre, did not approach this with a little more caution.
A UCE thankful
This is a copy of a letter sent to David Hill, president of the law student's
On behalf of the executive of AUCE local 1 and in conjunction with the
AUCE provincial office, we wish to express our appreciation of your stand
against the sexist activities of the engineering students at UBC during
engineering week.
We would expect that the image UBC would like to put forth is that of an
enlightened institution, striving to eradicate the inequity between men and
women. This far from the truth. The membership of AUCE local 1, 93
per cent of whom are women, are not given the choice of being exposed to
the Godiva Ride or to the Red Rag. Silence in the face of such sexist activities is tantamount to tacit support for these activities. By condoning this
annual event the university administration makes a mockery of any claims
that they are opposed to the repugnant activities of the engineers. This lack
of consciousness does nothing to enhance the opinion presently held of
engineers, the faculty of applied science, or the university as a whole.
It is surely appropriate that student governments join with those
employed on campus, and with the campus administration in opposing
discrimination within our own institution. Our workers must be on campus
in the course of our employment. Our union has always taken a s;rong
stand against the activities during engineering week. It is important to
know that the students at UBC are prepared to stand up for such fundamental rights.
We thank you again for your support.

It is unfortunate, I think, that the
intensity with which we concern
ourselves with matters that deserve
our intense attention can impart
such a single-minded drive "to set
things right" if we are led to jeopardizing gains in other areas that we,
in a different frame of mind, or in a
context in which different threats
are imminent, would fight just as
hard to secure. I am not sure if Sandra Garossino can be accused of
this, but from her letter we simply
cannot tell.

planning to go undefeated in its five
matches and will let UVic and
Calgary fight it out between
UBC team captain Dan Watts
said Tuesday it is quite likely the
winner of the Canada West will
become the national champion.
Watts and Ohman are both pleased with UBC's play at the moment.
Watts said "we have a good mix of
players and are playing well as a
team." He added there was a slight
adjustment last year with several
new players and a new coach.
Ohman is a good coach, according to Watts. He points out as
evidence, that two UBC players,
Chris Frehlick and Brad Willock,
are now on the Canadian junior
team and that Willock has also been
asked to try out for the senior national team.
Willock's future at that level is
bright because of his height and the
fact he is a setter. The setting position is usually played by a shorter
player and at 6'7" Willock is able to
not only set but also block and
spike effectively.
The UBC women started this
season playing better than the men
but since Christmas have slipped
slightly. Tara Senft, the top player
and leader of the women's team,
said because of the 2-3 results in the
last two tournaments UBC has had
to revise its goals and is now aiming
in the final tournament to improve
these last two scores and beat

Senft was a member of Canada's

finishes school next year.

Science is sexist
Women are systematically excluded from scientific research as
subjects because to the scientific
establishment, human means male,
according to a Simon Fraser
University professor.
"My objection is not that only
one sex is studied, but that the sex is
male," Meredith Kimball told 17
women in SUB 211. Kimball said
while this sex bias is being overcome, there is still an underlying attitude in research that human is
"Research is biased in a number
of ways," she said. "The first is the
choice of subjects in a study. In addition to this bias, researchers use
the sex that seems to fit," Kimball
She said we are more likely to see
research results that confirm gender
stereotypes. "There is less interest
and focus on how sex stereotypes
influence research.
"Leadership, for example, is a
topic where only men are studied,"
she said. "There is an implication
that what women do is not important."
Kimball, who has a joint appointment in women studies and
psychology, said "I'm not arguing
that science should be viewed from
a feminist perspective, but it gives
us a different view and is important
in removing traditional stereotypes.
I consider feminists as humanists,
not anti-male."
She cited the example of fear of
success. "Women are afraid of failing but are also afraid of success
because they think they seem less
feminine. The reason we accepted
the idea that women only experience fear of success is because it
fit in, it matched the stereotype,"
Kimball said.
"I did my own research and the
results were more varied. Men had
fear of success as well. This popular
topic in psychology shows that emphasis is placed on sex differences,
not on similarities," she said.
Kimball said stereotypes also influence therapy. Citing the example
of incest, she said "Freud believed
incestuous relationships between
father and daughter were the
daughter's fantasies, were made up.
Freud's view was accepted by other
therapists although women kept
coming back and complaining of
their father's sexual advances.
"The ultimate blow is to be told
that what happened didn't happen,
that it was all fantasy," she said.
Scientific impact
overwhelms public
"Most people are ignorant of the
impact of science on society," geneticist David Suzuki said Tuesday.
He told 150 people in IRC 2 that
our ignorance comes from attitudes
formed in elementary school because most elementary teachers are
"Women teachers have been
brainwashed into thinking science
isn't important," he said.
But he thinks people of the next
generation will gain more
knowledge due to the increase in
computer technology. "By 1990
one out of five jobs will have something to do with computers,"
He also warned that computers
will also be smarter, and will soon
have intelligence quotients of 10.
"When we find out one day that
computers are smarter than we are,
it is going to be a big blow to our
