It’s been a quiet week, and not just in Lake Wobegon. Part of the reason is that, notwithstanding irresponsible speculation to the contrary, I do have a job. But it’s not just me: Fitz and Wendy are quiet as well, and the Anchoress has repeatedly given notice in recent weeks that she has been quiet for one reason or another. (Her post on the other reason is worth reading, by the way.)
Personally, I suspect the academic calendar is somehow largely to blame. No matter how far I get from academic life (and by now it’s pretty far), I notice that the academic calendar still exerts tremendous influence. June, September, and December just seem to arrive pre-booked.
Anyway, because I’ve been otherwise occupied, and because I’d rather be candid about having nothing in particular to say, I’m putting up this essentially topic-less post to declare a sort of open mic night for Reasonable Minds. Think of it as your opportunity to comment on the post no one was smart enough to write. I’ll start.
