The alert reader will recall that this same office had planned on
I contacted the probation office in question and began the session to somehow avoid being forced to add one more misfit to our team. I pleaded that our ability to deal with the current members of our tinfoil hat brigade already here were stretched to the limit and more harm than good would come as a result of this action. Finally, a compromise was reached that will end this conflict: The individual in question will not be placed with us. In return, the office extracted a commitment to allow the staff to program next Friday's jukebox selection with no interference with me, regardless of the selection made. To date, I have taken on this duty and have felt it was my personal signature contribution to this forum. I immediately rejected this offer, but was met with a no movement stance from the other side. In the end, I had one choice: relent or accept the loser. You know the decision I made.
Here is what I am faced with. This is what the staff wanted to play. I only hope next Friday is better than this.
