Ah, the rough justice of committee meetings!

For a few chuckles, have a look at Michael Bérubé's Bizarro Academia, where Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are tenured professors:

Utah Valley State College Faculty News: Professor Hannity of the Department of Kicking Bespectacled Liberals’ Butts will be holding extended office hours on Thursday to meet with students to discuss their upcoming midterms and paper drafts. Professor Hannity has also been appointed to the College’s Adjunct Faculty Grievance Committee, which will meet Fridays 9-10:30, and to the Curriculum Revision Committee, which meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 10-12 from now through the end of the semester.

Professor Limbaugh of the Department of Advanced Psychotropic Research has announced that he will not be able to turn in midterm grades by the end of this week because of unexpected overenrollment in all four of his courses. Professor Limbaugh also chairs the College’s Strategic Planning Committee, which meets Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3-5, and is conducting a semester-long Faculty Senate review of Utah Valley State’s drug-testing policy.

Meanwhile, here’s tonight’s lineup on the Renard News Channel:

7 pm The Bérubé Factor
8 pm "Informed Comment” with Juan Cole
9 pm "Phun with Pharyngula” with P. Z. Myers
10 pm "Scribbling Woman” with Miriam Jones
11 pm "Preposterous Universe” with Sean Carroll

Have a good weekend, folks. I am off to my last swimmeet of the year--including the 400 IM of death--so please send my way any fast thoughts that cross your mind.
