In light of Danny Baker’s impressive resignation from BBC London Radio, my attention has been bought to this, the resignation of William Faulkner, the Pulitzer prize winning author and nobel laureate. He had a job as postmaster at the University of Mississippi from 1921 to 1924 and this except from his resignation letter made me laugh:
I will be damned if I propose to be at the beck and call of every itinerant scoundrel who has two cents to invest in a postage stamp.
