Proud to Be A Loser


If being married to the same person for 43 years and still seeing her as the love of my life makes me a loser-- then I am proud to be a loser

If teaching at Fordham for 47 years without trying to move to an Ivy League school makes me a loser- then I am proud to be a loser

If refusing to apply for merit increments for ten years so my younger colleagues can get bigger salary increases makes me a loser- then I am proud to be a loser

If cheering on people I know-including former students- who publish more important books than I have makes me a loser- then I am proud to be a loser

If working with attractive people without viewing them as objects of sexual consumption or sexual assault makes me a loser- then I am proud to be a loser

and finally

If reaching the age of 70 with no ambition to gain great power or wealth makes me a loser- then I am so proud to be a loser that I will even wear a "loser" tee shirt and hat!

B.I.O.M.F.
