The Joys of Academe

If you don't have a connection to academe, and especially to humanities disciplines within the aforementioned beast, then you might not think Michael Bérubé's post about how he is fighting the good fight to keep Republicans out of his department is funny. But if you do spend any of your time in academe, and especially if you have student-loan debt, and then even more so if you have ever served on a search committee, you'll likely laugh your ass off.

Meanwhile, Professor Bitch wrote one of the smartest assessments of students and their priorities I have seen in a while.

It's all almost enough to make me wish I were back in the fray.
