Then there is the announcement that showed up in my inbox today from the Accounting and Information Systems section of the CSUN Alumni Association:
This message is to invite you to upcoming November events for the CSUN AIS Alumni:AssociationI'm trying to imagine those who taught me accounting sponsoring a Monte Carlo Night. Then again, I try to imagine those who taught me banking leveraging entire banking companies on home loans that clearly could not ever be paid off.
Monte Carlo Night on Friday evening, November 7;
- Doors open: 5:30 PM, Games: 6:00 PM-10:00 PM, Raffle at the end of the evening
- Roulette ♣ Craps ♥ Blackjack ♠ Texas Hold' em ♦
- Refreshments / Appetizers
- Faculty and current Alumni Members: $30 General Public: $40
Apparently I don't have quite enough of an imagination to have been an accountant or banker in 2008. Given what's happened, I don't think I have anything to be ashamed of.
