Never Apologize, Never Explain

I'm really, really sorry to all the devoted followers of this blog whom I have let down over the last couple of months of craziness in the neoliberal university of excellence, but I reall have been totally swamped. There are "professional bloggers" because us amateurs are doing other things for a living.

But I'm damned and determined to keep the listings of area readings current - and I've "separated out" ones that I'm doing in other cities. As to when I'll actually write something substantive for the blog, heaven alone knows. But I do anticipate a little breathing room by January, if not before.

In the meantime, I will try to at least post a juicy quotation or two now and then, with or without citation, or gnomic utterances that are too large for Facebook.
