Weirdest email I’ve received all week (and I’ve already gotten some doozies):
Greetings and salutations!
I would like to let everyone know of our upcoming Permaculture Courses.
RiverSolar in cooperation with the Heritage Foundation is offering weekly courses in Permaculature and Design concepts. Core concepts will be provided in block format on Fridays from 12 – 2 PM beginning July 10, 2009 at the ArtEgg Building.
Students can choose to take one class or all leading to a Permaculture Design Certificate. Please contact Doris for enrollment information.
1001 So. Broad St. New Orleans, LA
Which sounds great except for the part about the HERITAGE FOUNDATION.
Seriously: THE Heritage Foundation? The same ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation that worshiped at the feet of Ronald Reagan? The same war-mongering Heritage Foundation that pushed heavily for the invasion of Iraq (and, less successfully, Iran)? The same Heritage Foundation that looked at the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina and found it a perfect example of the need for relaxed environmental regulations? That Heritage Foundation?
UPDATE: Of course it’s not that Heritage Foundation. As commenter Alex just pointed out:
It’s actually the Heritage Foundation for Arts and Cultural Sustainability, which shares a space in the ArtEgg building, along with RiverSolar.
Which is great, but also a really unfortunate choice of names. Oh well: at least the world makes sense again.
