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


"fun," "fun," "fun"

Sure signs you are in nerd central:

1. There's a totebag. And that totebag is brought to you by CSPAN:
2. The debate over only holding the conference in states that recognize equal rights for gay couples continues. Apparently we should only confer in Massachusetts, Vermont, and California. I swear, if one more email about this non-issue lands in my inbox...

3. Walking down Boylston Street means that one can't help but overhear heated conversations about the collective action dilemma and fragmentation.

At least there are friends to help us through...

Are you suggesting that a good number of academics might be elitist liberals?

I believe the empirical evidence backs that claim, yes.

I hate political science sometimes . . . a lot of the time. [sigh]

Michael, perhaps if they called it "political black magic" or "political arts" or "lessons in twisting arms and beating a dead horse" you would like it more.

TIA, a tote bag? At least my nerd conference supporters pony up to give out a decent backpack or shoulder bag. That tote bag looks like something you would get at a rally in a park.

Euphrony, that's because you're in a well-funded field. Scientists and engineers always get the good stuff while those of us without federal grants/oil money languish in the cheap seats. :)
