Or, Big Hairy Post No. 1.
Apocalypse Now. Shock and Horror. Barbarians at the Gates of Dawn of the Dead. Fear and Loathing in Academia, Education, and Intelligent Life in General (not that I am for a minute suggesting that these are synonymous, or that there’s anything other than some intersections going on here). Grotty politics. The archimimocratic revolution may be nigh, but it’s not yet quite here, alas and alack and alarum.
Anyway: So: Bad news first.
Old news… or recent history. Only time will tell.
Tired platitudes aside, herewith (the first of) The Promised Post(s): links from saved emails, bookmarks, and other virtual clippings. Lovingly grown over the summer months and now gathered for a bountiful harvest festival. Happy post-Lughnasadh and pre-Samhain.
