My macbook just suffered a cruel death just in time for my trip to support Glimmerglass (and do a few other things!) so I may be a little scarce here for a while.

  3. Life in the classroom is a Jekyll and Hyde paradox: I love to teach; I hate to teach. Ask me on Tuesday, and I will tell you about the love affair. Ask me on Wednesday, and I will sound like a murderous sociopath. Ain't life grand!

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
