We thought it was all very I guess you’d say existential back in those days.

Whatever. I’m extending your late tour into the cedar stands of Delmarva over the next couple of days, and so far I’ve had a lot more free food than I’ve had to do any work. They get to bat tomorrow, though.

I’m *so* tired of platters of cheddar cheese, stale crackers, half-dead fruit, and cookies.

Attendance is a lot better, esp. among the grad students, I’m guessing.

I need to start using food and drink as bribes, and to help lubricate intellectual exchange in my own department. It’s how I grew up in my grad department, but I’ve ended up teaching in departments where that wasn’t the tradition and/or there wasn’t the budget. But, it really works!

(Plus, it’s just nice to find out that someone is reading your book and taking it seriously.)

A good cure for the slumps, I tell ya.

What state name did Thomas Jefferson propose to give to that part of the Lower Peninsula? Will look forward to that podcast. Happy traveling tomorrow!
