 Greetings from Students for Social Justice!
        This	year,	just	as	last	year,	and	the	year	before,	and	despite	a	total	lack	of	results,	the	organization	Students	for	Social	Justice	has	decided	to	send	
the	administration	a	large	number	of	postcards	that	demand	the	wage	rate	for	Baylor	staff	be	raised.		Since	John	Lilley	will	inevitably	ignore	the	post	
cards,	the	administration	has	been	forced	to	think	of	ways	to	put	them	to	good	use.		We	here	at	the	Noble	NoZe	Brotherhood	(Satch!)	have	come	into	
possession	of	a	list	of	these	potential	uses	and	present	them	here	to	you	today.		They	are	as	such:

1. Ignore them                                           3. Use them as a spirit lifter                            proving	that	if	the	administration	raised	pay	they

	        This	option	is	fairly	self-explanatory	and	 	              With	this,	the	President	will	simply	take	
currently	the	most	likely	choice.                          all	the	cards	he	receives	and	save	them	for	a	day
