"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


the prince of darkness can't just quit!

Karl! Say it ain't so! Who else will we mock? Who else will nearly run over us at the Willard? Who else will be on our flights and in our offices? Who else's face will be on the clocks I send to Melissa the Missionary as housewarming gifts? Who else's cottage in Ingram will we accidentally rent out for the weekend? Who else's bed will we mockingly jump on?* What are we going to do?!?

Actually, we'll probably be seeing a lot more of him around Austin. As a matter of fact, I hereby issue an open invitation to come speak to my class. Soyez le bienvenue, M. Rove.

(*Yes, that's really us, and yes, that's really a bed at Karl Rove's house. It's a long story. I've cut off our faces for reasons that should be obvious.)
