There’s a whole bit about ha-has in Stoppard’s Arcadia. It’s brilliant on paper — and was even more brilliant in the Blair Brown/Victor Garber/Robert Sean Leonard production I still can’t believe I got to see. \(Which is the only reason I have the slightest clue what a ha\-ha is\.\)

I have just finished reviewing the copy edits on a forthcoming project and am moved to send a shout-out to the awesome copy editors of the world. It can be painful at moments to see the flaws in what you wrote laid bare, but the process inevitably ... https://kfitz.info/2-september-2018-1148/

My favorite part is the clarity with which it says that so-called hybrid OA is not compliant. #takethat

Not true. There are many journals with traditional process that meet these criteria — see, for instance, @openlibhums https://twitter.com/ProfDaveAndress/status/1036985999899996160

By *doing* it. Many journals have. Not to mention that @openlibhums and the editors of its journals might contest your characterization. https://twitter.com/ProfDaveAndress/status/1036990606785085440

I think you may be misunderstanding the term “constitutional crisis,” which we have been in repeatedly over the last 21 months. THIS, on the other hand, is what the constitution is FOR.
