Metaphor for the Late-Modern Academy
The Academy in the new millenium?

Gaudeamus Igitur

Well, maybe. Sometimes the Academy is really the pits, and you really don't think this is the most appropriate greeting. But put a pint of good Bass ale (whatever...) in one's hand, and things look rosier (drink it — lots rosier...).

A few occasional papers are published here. I have done less of that in the last couple decades, than popular writing (I have this preference for being paid when I work; I feel appreciated, too). Older academic things are indexed in the usual places.
