I'm Baaaack! Dammit.

I've had just enough vacation to completely resent having to come back to work. Plus, the next two days are meeting hell, as TPTB have discovered that a four year lag between planning and implementation tends to have a deleterious effect on outcomes. Somehow, this will be all my fault. Sometimes I wonder if working part time at a bookstore again might not be preferable to this crap...then I remember what that was like and get over it.

Brief notes from the weekend: Aquarium was fun. Shopping was fun. There was ocean frolicking, which has resulted in a sore foot and pulled inner thigh muscle--yes, I am officially Too Old to Frolic. Didn't get to see a movie, as we wasted hours of our lives watching the Red Sox SUCK. Side note: There is no scarier image than that of Stephen King yelling for the Sox. Seriously. Eeek.

On a more serious note, The Fire has a couple of pieces on the "climate of racial tolerance" prevalent at both Catholic University and UMass Amherst. Free speech isn't just the speech you like, guys. Seems like we keep on saying that, doesn't it?

I still think FIRE should try for some criminal prosecutions under 18 USC 241. By now it ought to be obvious that even when you win a civil suit, the offenders are more than ready to try again as soon as the court's back is turned.

Put a Dean in prison and change the world.
