The Distracted Blogger
My friend Andrew took me aside the other day to ask me, with great seriousness, whether I was OK. It transpired that he was intepreting my relative inactivity on the blogging front as possible evidence of severe depression. I was surprised at this, because you'd think a Yale professor would be fully aware that the onset of a new term - let alone a new academic year - brings with it a tidal wave of new work. Anyway, for those of you who feared that I was dangling from a rafter somewhere, no, I am still here and about to unleash a pent-up mass of mini-posts. Soon you will be wishing that I would just shut up. If, indeed, you're not already wishing this.
