Dear Professor Smith,
Thank you for your letter of March 6.
After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I
am unable to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant
professor position in your department.
This year I have been particularly
fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of
rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of
candidates it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.
Despite the University of Towanda's
outstanding qualifications and previous experience in
rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not
meet my needs at this time. Therefore, I will assume the
position of assistant professor in your department this May.
I look forward to seeing you then.
Best luck in rejecting future

telecommuting, in some cases, the best
way to bolster worker productivity
and health. Collaborative technologies allow group
teleconferencing; distance learning; Internet based demonstrations and
whiteboard sessions; sharing of online knowledgebases,
discussions, documents, calendars and customer
information; and secure, instantaneous and anywhere email,
web, PDA, paging and cellular phone
access. Further these collaborative communications can be
as structured or unstructured, in depth or superficial,
and spontaneous or planned
as the participants desire.
While face-to-face team and/or customer
meetings are important at times, it may not be cost
effective, necessary, beneficial or even feasible on a daily basis.

telecommuting and work-at-home should be considered as
alternatives for many types of workers. While the
"digital" handshake may not be as warm, in the
long term it may be more rewarding for all concerned. Further,
these advantages may apply not only to business, but
science, art and other walks of life. Perhaps the word "tele

connotes the necessity of commuting- unnecessary,
perhaps even harmful in many instances. Perhaps we are all,

Some workers have better
and quicker computer and telecommunications access at
home than at work, making them more, not less
productive than if they worked in an office-
notwithstanding the already enumerated personal
and societal benefits of working at home. It is my
hope that given the above, and the death of the
factory control, repetitive hyperspecialization
notion of work, knowledge workers and companies will
increasingly reap the rewards of work at home.

Good work finds the way between pride and despair.
It graces with health. It heals with grace.
It preserves the given so that it remains a gift
By it, we lose loneliness:
we clasp the hands of those who go before us, and the hands of those who come after us;
we enter the little circle of each other's arms,
and the larger circle of lovers whose hands are joined in a dance,
and the larger circle of all creatures, passing in and out of life, who move also in a
dance, to a music so subtle and vast that no ear hears it except in fragments.
