Couple of Academic links

Everyone is linking to this piece. Not sure why, other than as a perfect example of academic verbal diarrhea. Let's see...19 paragraphs to say "Hey! Academics are too busy engaging in an intellectual circle-jerk to have any real impact on America!" with a whole lot of unintentional irony thrown in for kicks and giggles. Sheesh. Tell me something I didn't know circa 1996, dude.

And via Erin O'Connor, the Sheldon Awards. Read 'em and weep.

ETA: Fixed second link. Sorry about that!
