.. sorry, would blog more but buried in worse than usual end of the semester deluge of grading, committee meetings, conferences (6 presentations on entirely different topics in a month!), designing yet another new course (the 5th new course in one year!), trying to catch up on backlog of manuscript reviews and overdue articles.... you know, the usual, only more so. Not likely to change this week ... so carry on. Not like anything's going on in the Middle East, right?
