The only bad coding I see there is the omission of parentheses around
the condition, and that it needs reformatting to fit into a sensible
$meeting = $today if(
$today->day eq 'Thursday' &&
$today->dayOfMonth >= 2 &&
$today->dayOfMonth <= 8
I replaced 'and' with '&&', because I *really* dislike 'and' and 'or' -
if you're worried about precedence, use parens instead of confusing the
reader with extra operators.
