Via Patrick Nielsen Hayden comes yet another interesting goddamn blog, this time from a history prof at Swarthmore. My God, have you people no pity? Give it a rest with your pithy and insighful commentary already. I’m supposed to be writing articles, for crying out loud.
I think I’ll be distributing this to my students soon, in the hope that it will do them some good.
Interesting fact about Swarthmore: I think it produces more sociologists per capita than any other university in the world. I have no hard data on this, but there’s a lot of anecdotal evidence.
