Closed for repairs
Not really. Just swamped with stuff. I’m looking at a pile of the usual letter-of-rec stuff, all of which is due yesterday, and I have a review of this book due by Friday. It turns out to be quite hard to squeeze a review of a 500-page book into the middle of a semester. Or maybe I’m just getting old and slow? And two-day MLA meetings, followed by an extended-family weekend, will tend to wreak havoc on one’s schedule. So I won’t be telling the Tale of the Broken Hockey Stick until next week at the earliest. In the meantime, feel free to comment on the public option, the Rangers’ reasonably good start, the complete and utter exposure of
Don Draper Dick Whitman, the Yankees-Phillies showdown, the question of whether Bill Ayers wrote Obama’s senior thesis, the continuing degradation of the Washington Post, the Buccaneers-Rams-Lions-Raiders-Redskins-Browns-Titans-Chiefs Consortium of Awful, and/or the delightful and effervescent way your humble blogger manages to combine an insufferable pretentiousness with an embarrassingly juvenile sense of humor. Trois loups et la lune, people! I’ll be back when this place is all fixed up and ready for visitors.
