THE PATRIOT GOES TO THE MOVIES
SCENE: Susan running out of the K.C.C. gate with a briefcase pursued by irate faculty, perhaps 3 or 4.
FACULTY 1: Susan, did you call your friend Chancellor Reynolds about the overloads? I cannot pay the tuition of my son at the college without the overload money.
FACULTY 2: Did you talk to Provost Zibrin about my class-size? I have more students than there are chairs in the classroom.
FACULTY 3: Susan, STOP! We want to talk to you. Have you done anything about my teaching assignment? My schedule is impossible.
FACULTY 4: Susan, what are you doing about our Secretarial Science Department? Are we going to have a job here next semester?
SUSAN: Please, please. DON'T BOTHER ME. I'm running to the Editorial Board Meeting of the Radical Teacher, then I have to go for a cocktail party at the Senate, then I have to go to the New York Public Library for a rare monograph, then I have to see my publisher.
FACULTY (All together): But our problems are important.
SUSAN: Come on now, You know I don't give a damn about those silly things. Find someone on the campus and talk to them.
FACULTY: But, Who?
SUSAN: Find anybody, and get it off your chest. Nothing can be done anyway.
FACULTY 2: I know what I am going to do. I will call that little guy from the Library who writes those snappy Patriots. Some may call him eccentric but I know one thing, he has the guts and nerve to criticize people like you who deserve criticism.
