Dr. Righteous in grad school

When Dr. Righteous was but a child, she received a registered letter from her grad school “Progress Committee” summoning her to discuss what they considered her “anger problem.” It seems that Dr. Righteous did not smile enough.

Dr. Righteous made it a point thereafter to sit in class and grin like a fool, and eventually received feedback that she was “improving” her attitude.

Dr. Righteous would like to point out that when our nearest cousin, the chimpanzee, grins, said chimpanzee is mad as hell and is she is about to bite your ass.
