Sorry for the lack of posts in the past few days. I took on some extra teaching this semester, and one class in particular is giving me a workout: this is an upper level American economic history class, and I have been spending an unprecedented amount of time (by my standards, at least) reading and prepping.

I expect that this is the peak of zaniness, and that by the weekend I will have reduced the mountain of work back down to a manageable size.

Unless, of course, it becomes animate and devours me.
