    Congratulations and happy blogiversary! It seems longer, but I suppose that’s because you post frequently and at length (and thoughtfully, amusingly, enjoyably!), so your archives are fuller than those of some of us who have been at it for longer.

    I found the don’t sleep with your students article refreshing. And depressing. I am a faculty brat, and have been involved with academia one way or the other most of my adult life. Yes, some of my friend’s parents were formerly faculty and student. But like the letter says, true love waits until you are no longer faculty and student. And the rest is just fucked-up boundaries.

    Billion dollar industry!!!!!!! Prison for children. Part of making America great again … like having Russia stand for breast feeding babies while one nation stands for formula industry profits, because we all know $ trumps children.
