In honor of the end of term (and the cleaning of my inbox), here is a hodgepodge of stuff:
#1 I am sorry I could not make it to class yesterday, but I have the flu. Was yesterday a review session for the midterm? What is the midterm going to be like? and it is next thursday? Also I wanted to know what you thought about my paper topic, I want to think about it more and I might change the topic later on in the semester. Thank you.
#2 Tenured Radical, on Venkatesh’s Gang Leader for a Day.
I actually had a longer list, but then realized some of it was actionable.
