Einstein said something like this:
If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what is an empty desk a sign?
Unfortunately the administration here, in the belief that they are wiser than Einstein, have decided to target two professors in the School of Mathematical Sciences who have cluttered minds.
One of these professors has been threatened with the cancellation of permission for a research visit. The other has been told that the Vice-Principal himself will come and supervise the tidying of his office. (This is the same Vice-Principal that, as I mentioned earlier, says with pride that he acts first and thinks later.)
It seems to me that there is something a bit amiss with the priorities here…
