Many years ago, a friend of mine worked for Public Storage, a facility which has those personal storage rooms for rent. She was a floater who drove around the many storage buildings here on Long Island, with one of her duties delivering checks to the main office. She recalled seeing a few personal checks which made out to "Pubic Storage," she told me later, which gave her a good laugh.

Perhaps one of those renters designed the UT program?

I guess that program will be quite the 'keepsake'.

At least it passed spellcheck. Failed on humancheck, though. However, a typo in one line of business just may not be a typo in another line of business. These will be our future gubment employees, after all.

From what I've heard about LBJ, there is nothing wrong on the program.

Just a promise to tell no more Aggie anecdotes jokes - in this thread, of course.

A simple observation - there seem to be two camps in this thread. Those that "got it" right away and those who pondered and finally figured "it" out. I'm sure a therapist would have a field day with us.

I assume that is their medical school? Specializing in urologists and ob/gyns?

The graduates are our future pubic public service employees. They should do well in their chosen field as long as they don't rely on spellcheck.
