Only if you consider health care to be a social good but education to be a private responsibility. That either produces crushing debt is a sign that we live in a profoundly immoral society that privileges profit above all else. https://twitter.com/BillKristol/status/1519714786954555392

Oh my goodness, what a story. I’m so glad you received the care you did. Most importantly, though, HUGE congratulations to you and Tacuma, and I can’t wait to meet this little one!

All we need is for someone to reinvent Google Reader as an open-source project. Connect it to @humcommons and I would be ALL IN.

There is a significant move in some places not to accept job ads without salary ranges. It will probably not surprise you that in academia it is being driven by libraryland.

Oh dang. I wonder if some nearby has a device that your tv is interpreting as its remote. Does your tv have a means of setting the channel that the remote communicates with it on? \(I hope that sentence makes sense\.\)

This sounds like the guy who ran the shoe repair shop I frequented in Claremont. We called it Grumpy Everett's Shoe Shop. But boy, he could repair the heck out of a pair of shoes. I hope he's still there, but I fear not.

Replying to @nancybaym

I totally get that. Though an experience with hypothermia years ago taught me to think of the brain as an unreliable narrator, so I’m a little less betrayed and a little more eye-rolly when it does something like this.

Fri May 20 13:08:09 +0000 2022

Replying to @nancybaym

Totally. I was convinced that everything was just fine, thanks. It took someone else talking to me to figure out that my systems weren’t functioning properly. I still have no idea what I sounded like. The brain is utterly incapable of observing itself.
