As Sven notes in comment 29 of this most diverting thread, I’m on the road today. I have to go to Hofstra and talk about stuff. A train and a room and a car and a room and a room and a room, you know the drill. But I wrote a bunch of new stuff just for the occasion. If I had enough patience and/or energy I would say something snarky about Mark “let’s dynamize the university dynamically by abolishing tenure and creating dynamic undepartments of dynamism” Taylor or Andrew “why are professors writing books when they should be teaching? I met a young man who wanted to write, and he made me mad, so we should abolish tenure. I had an onion in my belt, which was the fashion at the time” Hacker. But I don’t, so this post-it will have to do.
