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


across the plains of texas...

I, gentle readers, will already be in holiday weekend mode by the time you read this. There are a few posts (mostly on the 40 Day Fast) lined up for the weekend (thank goodness for future publishing!), but as of now, this is it, because I plan to take full advantage of one of the only federal holidays recognized by the University.

Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend of reading the Declaration of Independence & pondering the implications of the Lockean conception of natural rights for individual freedom, violating burn bans and nearly burning down your neighborhood with bottle rockets, teaching a Congolese cook how to make tortillas, blasting Bruce Springsteen and Lee Greenwood from the rooftop of your North African apartment like one of my colleagues is prone to do, and/or enjoying a trashy, patriotic music video from Waylon's boy. Happy 4th!
