Items of interest found recently in my RSS feed. Please share what you've been reading (and writing!) in the comments.

  • Tough times
  • – “OK, so the humanities are thriving at some places, but at others, we have to turn students away. I thought everybody hated us because we’re irrelevant and ugly and our mothers dress us funny and we have to justify our worth? Hmm. Perhaps we’re getting our budgets cut and our faculty lines frozen and our confidence (never high to begin with) rattled despite the facts that enrollments have held steady nationally and we have to turn students away from courses they want to take? “

  • Coming To You Live From An Alternate Reality …
  • – “The best way I can see to make sense of Krauthammer’s ravings is to suppose that America and freedom have merged in his mind, so that when a people demonstrates for freedom, we can infer that they are pro-American. But this is not just false; it’s crazy. “

  • Mythbusting Right-Wing Domestic Terrorism
  • – Sara from Orcinus offers fact-filled counters to wingnut talking points on domestic terrorism
