RE: [Histonet] ASCP whine. Please pass the cheese

From:"Rittman, Barry R"

Texian and Texicans are words used here, just like y'all and y'all
These words have arisen because many of the northerners are unable to
understand the culture here and be accepted. Once you understand how to
pronounce these words and actually use them everyday then you understand
something about the culture here and you are accepted. 
I can say this as I migrated from the north (Iowa) 15 years ago and,
like Joe, have loved every minute.

Is Texians a new word?  For the life of me can't find it in any
dictionary up North here!!!

You know Joe, we Texians were annexed unconstitutionally.  We should
just take up arms and re-revolt against the yankee oppressors( I know
you're a transplanted yankee, but we're willing to overlook it).  If Key
West can secede why can't we?  We were never formally asked to join the

you might want to hit the delete button on this one. I'm prepared to get
flamed and have my registries revoked, but I have to get something off
	As some of you may know, ASCP is now in charge of handling the
Pathologists' Assistant exam, of which I am partaking in. Not only did
raise the exam fee from $150 to $450, we now have to know ICD-9 codes,
to mention Robbin's Pathology book (which is heavy enough to break a
vase. I
know this because it fell out of my hand the other night and shattered a
vase.) Have you seen the ICD-9 book? Rather extension reading if I do
say so
	Moving on, after January 2008, one has to be a graduate of an
program. Well, that's just dandy because we in the South do not have any
programs to attend because they are all up North or on the East Coast.
we going to have to repeat the 1860's again? Are we in the South going
have to resort to revolting and have demonstration marches? Do I sense
discrimination here? Am I too sensitive? (I think not)
	It took us two years here just to get a Histology program up and
going at
the local community college. How long is it going to take to start a
master's level program?
	There, I've said my piece. thank you for letting me get thing
off my chest.
Oh yeah, I'm collecting money to replace the vase I broke. Until then,
be sleeping with my dogs. Which is okay, but the fleas are killing me.
	One other thing, I like Swiss, Muenster, Colby, Cheddar (sharp).
	as always, the opinion of this author does not reflect the
opinions of the
employees, their children, mothers, lawyers, etc, etc, etc.
