Okay, seriously, I am about to send this entire election cycle to its room to think about what it’s done.

Thanks for that! Mostly talked about MIT libraries’ budgetary innovations but misspoke on this aspect.

Replying to @mchris4duke, @zinelib and @amy_brand

You two are bringing multiple kinds of awesome.

One of the best things I ever got to do was introduce Walter Cronkite at @pomonacollege’s commencement. It was an extraordinary honor. https://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/794582487880110082

On my way to MKE for @CLIRnews and @CLIRDLF!

Listening to @terrainsvagues and @libmark present the history and future of our collaboration on @humcommons & CORE. #DLFforum

I voted absentee this year in order to attend the #DLFforum. I miss my polling place, though, and the ritual of the day.

Fluffy animals have saved me today. https://twitter.com/terrainsvagues/status/796112718407340032

I am horrified. And terrified. And so, so sorry. But I am not giving up. This must be fought, and I will fight.

This is smart and powerful. I only have one quibble with it. https://medium.com/@alexyoung_59363/the-pendulum-swings-both-ways-61d50f6608d9#.3ruev3257

The claim that our side didn’t show up ignores the destruction of the Voting Rights Act. Many couldn’t show up; many were turned away.

I have the Waterfield Staad small backpack in black-on-black. It’s very profesh but not as flexible as I’d like.

The last few days have shown the desperate need for humanities and social science education, but work in those fields is in serious danger. https://twitter.com/jasonrhody/status/797174737847910400

Grateful this morning to celebrate the bat mitzvah of the daughter of dear friends, to be part of a joyous look toward the future.

Hmmm. I don’t have crunchy but I do have a decent creamy, and a good apple or two…

It is difficult indeed. Many thanks, R.

Argh, Rohan, I am so sorry to hear about this. Thank you for opening a larger conversation.

The entire @mlastyle team thanks you! $$Check out the free resources at http://style\.mla\.org too\.$$ https://twitter.com/DanielPaulOD/status/798966305739018240

I called both Senators yesterday to thank them for their efforts and received positive, caring attention to my concerns. https://twitter.com/AbigailK1980/status/798553762164015104

Very happy to be in Lawrence KS for #KUOASymp16. Last time I was here it was 3 degrees. Today it is 75 more than that.

Safe travels, Martin - great seeing you!

This whole thread. So connected to my focus in Generous Thinking, though I want to bridge the gap between the university and the community. https://twitter.com/colindickey/status/800008868596092928

RT @felixgilman: we're just going to have to get used to having thirty scandals on the go at once and triaging attention as best we can

Whoa, it was still rightside-up when I was there last Saturday. Thanks for this picture.

We were there last Saturday, before the reinstallation. All the more moving now.

I am stunned that one even has to point out that this kind of thing is Not Okay. https://twitter.com/joshtpm/status/800745959244251136

I’m so sorry to hear this, Martin. I imagine the travel must have taken a bit of a toll. Take care of yourself!

I’d be happy with this as well.

Congratulations!!! Such a nice bit of Thanksgivng news.

ON IT.

First, you make a roux.

$$Contents are darker than they appear\.$$

Aw man, no. Gumbo!

Fab!

Chicken & sausage gumbo, a big salad, and an olive oil-orange-almond cake for dessert. Good night, all.

ENOUGH. I am calling the rest of this year off.

I can’t help but think of the end of “A Good Man Is Hard to Find”: “She would have been a good woman +

if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life.”

“Our grudging acceptance that progress and diversity are fragile bits of spun glass looks like hopelessness because it doesn’t absolve.” https://twitter.com/tressiemcphd/status/802959868801884160

I just… I am not retweeting that. But holy shit.

Ooh, good to know.

I could also use a little revolt these days, oddly.

This is a really, really good question. https://twitter.com/AstroKatie/status/802982523634647040
