Big Scary Dreams

Hired at Texas Tech University earlier this year over the protests
of 70 professors who cited his multitude of "ethical failings," Alberto
Gonzales is teaching a political science class on the Executive Branch
rather than doing prison laundry as he should be. The brazen Gonzales
says he wants to encourage his students to aim high, clearly a subjective concept.

"Dream big but be patient," he said. "You never know when the next
George W. Bush is going to come along and give you a once in a lifetime
opportunity like he gave me."
