Please do read the entry just below, in which I ask for your help. I'll be reading the answers--but in the short term, I'm moving pretty soon, and it'll probably take a while to settle in once I get there. So no posts, at least no major posts, for a little while. I'll probably look in every so often to clean off the spam.

I'll leave you with this thought (such as it is) about the hearings on the 'academic atmosphere' in Pennsylvania public colleges and universities:

Though it's probably unfair to pick on a fellow who can't even get the title of Billy Madison straight (via TPM), it's still not encouraging to see them trumpeted with the statement "Left-wing professors... will soon be purged."

Good luck with the move to Texas. I'm starting the drive to Dallas on the 4th so in the off chance that you'll be on the road at the same time, give a honk and a wave if you see a Blue VW and a black ford pulling a trailer.

A little while ago you asked who Diana Wynne Jones is. Can I refer you to www.leemac.freeserve.co.uk for a comprehensive website on her?
I read her when I was a kid and got hooked back into her after watching Howl's Moving Castle (Japanese anime version) earlier this year. Have now read practically all her books and am suffering from major withdrawal symptoms.
